I don’t know why Hot Topic is doing this… regardless of whether it can be claimed by a person or group, the designers are being lazy and should be ashamed of themselves for blatently stealing work. Honestly, exploiting a meme is only okay when viral marketing is set up by the people who created the OC. Otherwise, it’s just not okay.
What if I decide to rip the CDs that Hot Topic sells and resell them. Not okay right? They’d be on me like a dingo to it’s injured young. They get the legal advantage. Anonymous doesn’t have the ability or constitution to use the law to their advantage. If something belongs to them, all they have is a hoard mentality… and apparently that doesn’t cut it in today’s corporate society.
