What? Yes, this is the new reality - The secret masters of “Copy & Paste” do not wish themselves to be copied! Seen on Eurobike opposite of our booth in A 6. A nameless company from Thailand presented a very simple copy of an e-bike - coincidentally very similar to a model made by a larger brand from Holland. Even the stem shifter, the frame design and the chain protection were 1:1 copies of the original. But – and this is very self-ironic – they asked for not being “shot” by visitors..
Hey people from Thailand: This is an international fair.. people are coming to see new stuff and for sure they will take photos! But the emphasis is on the word “NEW”.. so don´t worry, no one – apart from some lawyers will be interested in your stuff and take unauthorized photos.
And.. one last word – my dear Thai Copy-cats:
No one never-ever will copy a bad copy.. you already did it so nice, for sure someone in Old Europe appreciates giving you the inspiration…
What else happened?
A lot of things, I nearly spent 2 weeks in Germany. I have not yet finished my “sort-out” process of checking out the new stuff from the very new stuff, the interesting and funny stuff from the boring stuff and so on… so please give me one more week and I will post my personalized overview of the Eurobike 2010. I promise to try not to be boring…
