urban counterfitters*

alberto thought i just spelled urban outfitters wrong in my last post when i wrote urban counterfitters, so i thought i would explain. last year i became aware of a problem with the design ethics of urban outfitters. designers, especially freelance designers, rarely have the monetary backing to protect their work from being stolen. urban outfitters has, allegedly, stolen design work in the past. i know it's hard to say what is stolen vs. inspiration, but i've seen some strong examples to make the case.

i try not to shop there b/c of this. it's hard for me, but it's the right thing to do. you guys can decide on your own: urban counterfeiters blog
