German Copycats Clone Amazon.com

The notorious Samwer brothers have launched a copy of the world's biggest online retailer
German Copycats Clone Amazon.com

Germany’s Samwer brothers, known for cloning American companies’ business models and launching copycat versions abroad, have some bold new source material: Amazon.com, the world’s biggest online retailer.

The recently launched rip-off site, Lazada.com, replicates Amazon’s orange, blue, and white layout and even mimics the little orange smiley-esque arc in Amazon’s logo (though the arc has been replaced by a tiny shopping cart silhouette on some of Lazada’s international sites).
