Has anyone else posted this yet?

EHX successfully sued Mooer.

Turns out Mooer's EHX-"inspired" octavers were... well, rip-offs. Apparently EHX purchased some, cracked them open and found EHX's own trademarks in the internal coding. Mooer had actually copied the software from their POG series pedals.

The fucking balls on them.

If ehx made pedals the same size as mooer I think it'd be different. Otherwise I don't think it'll be a huge deal, I imagine Mooer will release a MK III that is still basically the same thing.

I snoozed on those Micro POG clones, annoyingly; they're mad pricey now because they're so rare, and probably better built than the EHX, and like a third of the size.

isn't that article from 2016?

Anyway I have a Tender Octaver and like it...I don't use it on guitar too much but it's fun to make cheap casios sound like huge church organs.

yeah since mooer is still around 2.5 years after the article was published, i imagine they've made the necessary adjustments to continue selling their clones with less thievery.

This was poasted on the EHX site last week:

Quote:
Chinese Pirates of Electro-Harmonix Software Walk the Plank!

Shenzhen MooerAudio Co., Ltd., a Chinese manufacturer and marketer of electronic effects pedals, was flagrantly infringing on EHX's copyrighted software. Two of Mooer's effects pedals, an organ simulator named the "Mooergan" and an octave pedal called the "Tender Octaver" included exact copies of the compiled software contained in EHX's C9 Organ Machine and Micro POG pedals.

The infringement was so bold and blatant that Shenzhen Mooer audaciously copied the Electro-Harmonix copyright notice in the software powering the C9 and Micro POG. After becoming aware of this piracy, Electro-Harmonix retained counsel and aggressively sought recourse.

EHX President, Mike Matthews, stated: "Electro-Harmonix has successfully won battles with labor racketeers in the U.S.A. and ruthless mobsters in Russia. After almost two years of fighting, the Chinese courts have awarded Electro-Harmonix a nearly six figure judgement. Our victory is now complete and these pirates have walked the plank!"

a judgment of like $90grand is walking the plank? how adorable.


pretty sure when you're a 50yo company selling $300 boxes of metal and wires, 90k is a rounding error. if this was the court throwing the book at mooer, it's gotta be akin to the "pokey little puppy" or "everybody poops".
