Indie LA-based artist, Tuesday Bassen, (whose had brands like Playboy, The New Yorker, United Nations, Nike, and Adidas as clients,) took to her Twitter account to call out Zara for stealing her pin designs. Without offering credit or compensation, the Swedish fashion house recreated six of her copyright-protected designs and are refusing to take accountability for the theft.

"We reject your claims here for reasons similar to those stated above: the lack of distinctiveness of your client's purported designs makes it very hard to see how a significant part of the population anywhere in the world would associate the signs with Tuesday Bassen," an email from Zara read - which basically means, they're a huge brand and can do whatever they want because the designs are "too simple" and Tuesday isn't as well-known as they are.

The irony there is that Tuesday only found out about the blatant copy, because her fans would reach out in private messages to let her know. But Zara had a response to that as well: "Please note that such [third party] notifications amount to a handful of complaints only...millions of users worldwide visit the respective websites monthly (Zara: 98,000.000 average monthly visits last year..)" they said.

Next up, Tuesday is reportedly working to federally register her existing copyrights, while preparing to initiate a copying lawsuit against Zara.
