The large wall of pretty coloured effects pedals on display at Behringers NAMM stand did bear an uncanny resemblance to the widely used range of Boss effects pedals - except of course for their price ($19.99 to 24.99!) A fact that didn't fail to go un-noticed by the Roland Corporation who have filed a lawsuit against Behringer post haste, claiming Behringer falsely assured industry retailers that the Behringer line of pedals was approved and endorsed by Roland. In the words of Dennis Houlihan, head honcho of Roland US "Imitation is not flattery, and is far from sincere, when the subject is Roland's valuable trade dress. Roland has expended monumental effort and substantial amounts to create and promote the design elements of its BOSS line of guitar effects pedals. Behringer's replication of the famous BOSS trade dress has caused extensive damage to Roland and its reputation, and Behringer's false claim that Roland has endorsed Behringer's unadulterated infringement is unconscionable." Oh dear. We're not sure when the case goes to court, but we'll keep you posted.
