Urban Outfitters has been notorious for stealing designs from independent designers and is keeping up the reputation. The latest is jewelry designer and Etsy seller, Stevie Koerner. Urban Outfitters's "I heart destinations" line not only ripped off Koerner's "I heart" designs but even stole copy from her product descriptions. Sad.

Koerner's blog post circulated the the world yesterday. Her story was a trending topic on Twitter and covered by the Huffington Post within hours. It only took ONE day, 24 hours, for Urban Outfitters to pull the product line and they have yet to comment. I'm loving the power of social media and just a few passionate voices!
