A Dutch low price retailer is selling a… well… Big Green Egg lookalike. At a quarter of the price of a genuine Big Green Egg barbecue, this barbecue has copied a lot of design features of its more expensive ‘brother’.
The shape, the ‘dented’ outside ceramic shell, the wooden handle. And hopefully also its quality.
Design infringement? Copyright infringement? Slavish copy? It remains to be seen if The Big Green Egg, Inc., manufacturer of the green barbecues, has sufficiently protected the design of the products. If so, its much cheaper sister may not live to see the end of summer.
