First of all thank you to Mr. AJ Dimarucot collisiontheory because he’s the one helping us regarding this issue. Credit to Mark Joseph Tan for the photo.

“The designers of local clothing company Bench/ lifestyle + clothing Human – alternative clothing and lifestyle ripped off this design INDUSTRY VS. ECOLOGY printed here at DesignByHumans.They tweaked parts of the design but you can still see the areas they copied on the left. To be fair, the big bosses of the local brand probably don’t know it’s a rip, it’s the lazy artists who copy other people’s that bothers me a lot.” words by Mr. AJ

I hope DBH will take an action for this issue.

It is very alarming to know that nowadays people can easily rip a design because almost everyone knows how to use Photoshop, Illustrator and other photo-editor apps. There must a be an effective way to prevent this from happening again. Anyways, great post dan.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Once I am back in the office on Monday I will take a closer look at this and talk to our legal person. Ripped art is not cool and unfortunately in The Philippines and other countries the authorities are slow in reacting. Very frustrating and annoying. I’ll respond to your email when I know more.

In terms of orientation it’s obvious that the design was ripped, however It’s also arguable that they changed so much of it it may fall under fair use. However, i’m am in No way endorsing the company, and I express my greatest sympathies in regards to this development.
