Mu-tron III liscenced copies?

I was reading this and wondering if anyone ever found one:

Musitronics did license the Mu-Tron III circuitry to a few different companies in the seventies – the Univox Funky Filter and Monacor Effectmatic are notable examples of the Mu- Tron in disguise.

"sheer sonic superiority"
:cool:

I saw a Funky Filter on Ebay yesterday... I think it was in New Zealand, though.
Here it it:

Was this a licenced copy?

I believe the Ibanez is not a clone.

It's my understanding that the Ibanez/Maxon AF-9 are a different circuit.

Also, sonically speaking, this is how I understand these pedals:

MuTron > Perhaps these clones > QTron+ (similar circuit) > Ibanez/Maxon > Bassballs and Nano > Haz MuTron

Perhaps I'm wrong.
