In the corporate world, things aren?ˉt always as cut-and-dried as we might like. Take the term "ugg." To the Australians who?ˉve spent their lives making fleece-lined, flat-heeled sheepskin boots, it?ˉs a generic term denoting their type of product. To most of the modern world, it?ˉs a trademark of Ugg Australia, the division of the Deckers Corporation that makes the most popular boots of this type in the world.
For most of their existence, uggs were a homey Aussie secret. Then the word got out to American surfers, who began wearing the warm boots that their Aussie brethren had been wearing for decades. Suddenly, UGG Ultra Tall hit the big time in the early 2000s, becoming the must-have women?ˉs fashion item. The traditional Australian manufacturers were delighted, and went to great lengths to meet the growing demand for their comfy boots.
