It has been an interesting week. We saw a Chinese car company copying the true American Ford F150 and Chevy
Silverado Colorado. This one however, beats all. Here we have a Chinese beer brand from the great city of Jingzhou in Hubei Province called ‘Jeep Beer’ (吉普啤酒). ‘USA Jeep Group Limited’, a pic of a Jeep, ‘Jeep’s Premium Quality Beer’, and ‘Just for Man’.
Stealing Jeep-things for beer is really bad, but what really pisses me off is that they also copied the famous tilted ‘e’, the red star, and the label’s overall design from the great beermaker Heineken from the Netherlands, My Home Country! That ‘e’ alone has been copyrighted a zillion times!
