Urban Outfitters Controversy

jet_crop.gif Johnny Cupcakes, a clothing and accessory website for both men and women, is claiming that Urban Outfitters has stolen an idea of theirs. They had a t-shirt in the summer of 2004 that pictured a flying plane dropping cupcakes. Urban Outfitters currently has a t-shirt for sale with almost the identical picture. Johnny Cupcakes is very angry, which is quite obvious on their front page, claiming that Urban Outfitters wanted to sell some of their t-shirt ideas last year, including this one. The company is contacting their lawyers right now to pursue the matter. They also claim that this has happened to many other independent designers. The Shirt Snob doesn't want to take sides because we hate issues, but we can't find either t-shirt for sale. However, Johnny Cupcakes does have some cute tees, so support the independent, limited edition company today!
