My friends and colleagues might think I harp on the copyright thing a little much.  I admit, it annoys me, it can’t feel right when one does it, and it hurts others.

Bassen, an LA artist and designer shows us some examples of where Zara has seemingly stolen some of her designs, and what she is doing about it.  It’s pretty clear, with 4 almost identical images, makes it a more intentional act, versus just one image.

The personal discipline, risk and dedication, amongst other things, makes being an independent artist or designer a exceptional challenge.  There are countless reasons to celebrate this commitment, and it needs to be celebrated by big business, rather than abused.

That said, when an artist copies cartoon characters or images made famous or created by another artist or company, directly, it’s plagiarism, as we see with Melania, it leaves a bad taste in one’s mouth.

To help Bassen out, you can check the link above, and then check the link in the article for some of her designs.
