will the real havies please stand up?

as we were driving down edsa—actually more like inching our way down edsa like a turtle on mogs—we entertained ourselves by looking out the window when whoa look at what we spotted on the road:

a delivery of the "sunflower" collection of flip-flops by—what's this?—havana?? did they run out of red paint or what?? now we've admitted before, we're no havaianas experts, but isn't that their font? a blatant case of copyright infringement, or a tsinelas is a tsinelas is a tsinelas?

I've been seeing a lot of these slippers here in Cebu. And you are correct, it is in-your-face copyright infringement. And I even saw these being sold inside Ayala Center Cebu (in one of those tiangges) where Rustan's sells them. I wonder what Anne Arcenas-Gonzales has to comment about this...
