Stealing intellectual property is nothing new and fashion designer Jeremy Scott has been stealing for years. I must admit, I’m a fashion guru around my own inner CIRCLES, but I’m not really familiar with Jeremy Scott’s work. I’ve heard his name before though when he legally licensed the image of Bart Simpson for one of his SWEATERS and my best friend SHERWIN who’s a massive Simpson’s fan paid up to $700 for one on Ebay. And 8 years ago, my cousin CLETUS was ticked off when he was at Stater Brothers and saw on the cover of some fashion magazine a photo of Jeremy Scott who clearly stole Cletus’s HAIRDO.
So in this day in age where it seems as if your creative ideas are never solely yours anymore, we must look to China where everything from high fashion to technology, to even architecture is blatantly ripped off. Instead of lawsuits and crazy lawyer fees, these two sides should just DUKE IT OUT. Or you can share in the conversation the 21st century way like in the video below.
