Default What was Thermaltake thinking?

techPowerUp! News :: Thermaltake Introduces V9 Black Edition Mid Tower Gaming Chassis

Seriously this is as blatant a knockoff as all the fake iphones from China.

Thoughts?

The Antec 900 is made by ANTEC, this is a blatant knockoff by Thermaltake.

well aspire, trying to figure out why anyone does anything you see online is as good as trying to have a meaningful relationship with my ex

its interesting for a while, then you realise "wtf have i been doing..."

its like the new PURE copper whatever thing from Thermalright that you can order online,

its like 15LBS! FFS, they void the warranty just for standing your case up vertically!!!

it would be easier to get a cheap water-cooling system for 30 dollars more, and u wouldnt have to worry about coming home to a CPU in the bottom of your case.

What are you talking about?

I'm talking about Intellectual Property rights and the fact that this is an almost identical copy of the Antec 900.

a company like thermaltake isnt going to do anything that will lead to a big lawsuit,
knowingly....

im sure they have thought about it,

and besides, even if your case is an EXACT replica of the antec 900, you can change 1 little thing, and its yours=) the law cant do anything about it..

same with music, same with lyrics... and any other "intellectual property"

Your wrong in that respects.

The product has to be noticeably different.

Same reason why the iphone knockoff's are illegal by U.S. law. There are differences but not enough for it to be considered a new product.
