This week has been so full of copycats it is crazy...CRAZY. The other day I was totally appalled when I was reading C Jane and how women are taking her blog posts...and word for word posting them on THEIR sites as if they were the witty ones that wrote it. I cannot even wrap my mind around that. How can you do that and carry on as if it is ok? Poor C Jane (Courtney) I think it is driving her mad. It wasn't just one lady or just one post either. It was several people and several posts. That is sick.
So I was carrying on my day today as usual. A boutique had asked me about a certain product from a different vendor and so I was looking and googling and happened upon a site I have never heard of before. So I am browzing and ohmygod...I was stopped dead in my tracks. The photos posted explain what I found. These photos on this post are not my products, I am sure you can tell that(although those leggings sure the hell could be mine)...BUT...they certainly bare a strange resemblance to items I have been making for over 2 years now. Items that came out of my own head. Items that only I do. I am not claiming to have come up with the I heart such and such...or that Kindergarten does in deed rock...BUT...COME ON PEOPLE! I knew it was only a matter of time before this happened. I have seen a couple kindergarten rocks things done in my rainbow of stones...they don't compare. But I draw the line at my leggings...that is my design...that is my font...those are my leggings. Like I have said, I knew it was only a matter of time before someone tried this...and I was ready...am ready because those leggings you see are trademarked. I own that design. I have emailed the woman who had the gall to make those and mentioned as such. Sigh. Why do women do this to other women. I am not going to compare this to C Janes issues...but I bet I feel as sick as she does.
Man that stinks doesn't it? I had this issue with another lady last year. A MAJOR lady. We had words...and trust me...I don't like words...but we had them. She tried to turn it around on me...but the truth is the truth and both she and I know who's design it was. Nuff said.
