Swiss watch companies suing watch face developers and websites

“Thousands of watch faces available thanks to apps in the Play Store like Facer. Many of those faces are replicas of actual luxury watches, giving you the feeling of owning one without dropping thousands of dollars on one. But now companies like Rolex are trying to stop these replica faces from being available.

According to TorrentFreak, IWC, Panerai, Omega, Fossil, Armani, Michael Kors, Tissot, Certina, Swatch, Flik Flak and Mondaine are sending cease and desist notices to any site or individual who offers such replicas.”

So do you blame the Swiss watch companies? I don’t. If they own the copyright and trademarks then it’s fair game. It may not be popular though.
