Marc Jacobs vs Kurt & Co

Influence can come from anywhere. It often happens unconsciously.

We think we have an exciting new idea. Then find out someone has done something similar before.

Shit happens as they say.

The Marc Jacobs t-shirt above is very clearly borrowing from the classic Nirvana t-shirt below.

Rip off? Most probably.

But where it gets really interesting is Marc Jacobs is currently countersuing Nirvana after they set their lawyers on him.

Those lawyers cost money. A lot of money.

So why don't both brands agree that pretty much everything is a remix and donate to a charity all the money they were going to give to their collective lawyers simply to prove a point?

I mean seriously. It's a goddamn smiley face for goodness sake!
