Ugg's parent company has filed a lawsuit against Emu Australia because the latter company also makes shearling boots. But Emu isn't going down without a fight. In a statement emailed to Racked National, the company points out that Ugg isn't even owned by an Australian company. Also? "The fact that UGG Australia has filed a law suit against a company for misleading consumers makes us laugh down here in Australia." Look out, everyone: This could get Uggly. [Racked National]
