    G'day,

    According to WayBack Machine web.archive.org opponent's company stated on its website following:

    Statement on 16/06/2012 - “Since 1983 we have been manufacturing Australian Black Sheep brand sheepskin footwear”

    Statement 22/05/2013: “Since 1983 we have been manufacturing Australian Black Sheep brand sheepskin footwear”

    Statement on 14/01/2014: “Since 1983 we have been manufacturing Originals UGG Australia brand sheepskin footwear”

    Statement on 16/05/2014: “Since 1985 we have been manufacturing Originals UGG Australia brand sheepskin footwear”

    In the period between 22/05/2013 and 14/01/2014 Australian Black Sheep brand was changed to Originals UGG Australia brand in the online statement which added extra 27 years (2012 - 1985 = 27 years) to Originals UGG Australia which was developed only in 2012.

    Is this considered as brand history falsification from the point of view of Australian IP legislation or not?

    Thank you in advance for your opinions.
