Seba CJ vs USD Carbon

USD Carbon vs Seba CJ

Rip off, or just similar? There seems to be some controversy around the new skate from Seba. Shown here in a shot by Kate Egan from the Lady Rollers Organisation at Winterclash 2013 this weekend is the new CJ Wellsmore model (left) alongside the Carbon IV model from USD (right) released last summer. There is no question that they are a very similar design, but is this copying? There are only so many ways to lay out a boot, especially given the constraints of using a fabric covered carbon boot, but have Seba gone too far?
