Etsy is a great great site where you can find so many beautiful unique items from artists themselves. So artists can make a living. Well Urban Outfitters blatantly lifted this artists idea and event the NAME of her products.

I mean by boycott: spread far and wide to everyone (esp teenagers pointing out that this could be their best friend) and to stop going there. Make it a rebellious thing...

Stealing the ideas of others is very common in the retail/merchandise industry. Even if you have trademark/copyright on the idea they still steal it, because they know your only option is to sue them for damages and most people don't have the time, will or financial means to get embroiled in a lawsuit.

I found plenty of links for Urban Outfitters Necklaces but none of them are working..maybe they decided they really got caught this time! I have found many related articles about this blatant thievery. It is very disgusting how people steal other peoples ideas ..I know I have had my designs ripped off too. I am on Etsy as well as run my own website selling my custom made and designed wedding items. Working hard to create something unique and seeing someone just pluck it up and call it their own makes me sick. I hope that if anything this brings more business to the artist.

Not yet, but someday I plan to. I love painting and making things. It's so frustrating because I had art for years and knew many artists who are phenomenal and they get next to nothing for their hard work (and the cost is high, and primarily for the love of it) and to have even their very creativity stolen is unbearable to me. God gave them these talents, not so corporate weasel can just snatch them out of thin air.

I wish Etsy has like a 10 dollar copyright process. Some places do.

At any rate, i am an avid customer and admirer and I would rather have a unique creation from the heart than commercial shit anyway, for this very reason. I often wonder how many poor people in third world countries get a crumb and then the "designer" gets millions for buying it off the poor. It's frosts my ass.

BTW, Giada De Laurentis from the Food TV, is the owner of Anthropologie, her husband owns it, and by virtue of marriage so does she. And she's a nasty bitch. My friend is a bartender and she was talking to Giada's husband (HE was flirting with HER) and he left her a five dollar tip and Giada came up and gave her nasty look and snatched the five. And a five is not generous int he first place for 150 dollar a bottle whiskey.

I don't know if you ever read the forums over there, but there have been a *lot* of examples of seller's pictures and designs being stolen by users on alibaba (a site for wholesale manufacturers overseas). The take their pictures and use them without changing a thing. Sometimes they will even buy one of the seller's items to use as a prototype and manufacture the item en masse, selling it at wholesale prices. And, what is the seller, the little guy, supposed to do about it? It's frustrating how little recourse many sellers have in these situations,.
