Urban Counterfeiters

This weekend I stumbled on a website called UrbanCounterfeiters that deals with a designer problem. Apparently several designers had their ideas /designs used by large companies such as Urban Outfitters, but never seen any reimbursement for it. Sometimes the issue is just blatant design /idea theft.

This sucks for sure, and I will not buy another Urban Outfitters t-shirt. :-(

Example (from UrbanCounterfeiters site):

CrownFarmers 2003 design:

Urban Outfitters 2006 "design."
