1. Early last week Etsy designer Stevie Koerner accused Urban Outfitters of ripping off her United States of Love design.
3. Now, Urban Outfitters have responded, and their blog about it is well worth a read.
What I think
1. It’s very interesting that Regretsy have got involved in this. They seem to have given Urban Outfitters a good case. Should they have done that? I don’t know. I think Avril of Regretsy is brave to do so though. She already faces the wrath of Etsy sellers who think she’s a traitor to craft.
2. Urban Outfitters have a history of this. I don’t believe for a second they didn’t nick it from someone
3. We should all buy more stuff from places like Etsy rather than Urban Outfitters.
