It’s widely known that corporations liberally borrow or co-opt emerging youth culture in order to remain relevant to the under-35 consumer. However some companies, notably clothing designers are so morally and creatively bankrupt they will actually steal art and designs from smaller designers in order to meet the bottom line. Or even worse, re-purpose artwork of creative firm outside of the contractual accepted usage.
Urban Counterfeiters is dedicated to “bringing American consumers reports from small companies and artists who have been taken advantage of by large corporations.”, mostly centered around the shenanigans of Urban Outfitters and their blatant lifting of the artwork of others.
