Ok, you're a designer, and this happens to you. What if you see a very peculiar design on a website like this? What do you do next? Elite designers such as Diane Von Furstenburg and Gwen Stefani took this to heart recently, and pressed charges. The strange thing is that this whole fashion infringement thing is really a very complicated issue. Designer Zac Posen has mixed feelings about the problems with copycats, but he still wants protection. Most companies/brands claim that they are just trying to stay "on-trend" when they are essentially stealing. However, this is truly what makes fashion amazing and forever evolving. You must be original to stand out and to be respectable in today's high fashion society. See images of designer knockoffs here and here.
