    Left: Robert Indiana

    Right: Urban Outfitters

    They don’t even mention Indiana in the product description. This has to be copyright infringement…right? No?

    UPDATE: I guess not…still makes me angry for the lack of respect and blatant unoriginality on the retailer’s part. Sad for the state of things.
