in case you all are wondering, i do know and am very clear about the difference between 'inspired by' and 'direct plagiarism'.

it is stuff like this that are spawning the rampage of fakes and copies flooding the china market of all the respected designers in this forum... all your unknowing, uninitiated naivete-s are just giving encouragement and 'justification' to these people for what they are doing.

please look up www.taobao.com and flip through all the fakes/copies that ride the coattails of almost every single designer under discussion in this forum.
