Fact: Blood is the New Black makes funny shirts. Fact: ASOS waits until other people make funny shirts, then pounces. A New Fact (to us, anyway): ASOS will copy any designer, not just the big ones, including this indie brand - as long as a star wears it. So when a reader sent in that Blood is the New Black's Blood Gang shirt was copied, we were a little surprised that ASOS even knew BNB, and that some star wore a shirt by them (anybody know who? Our guess goes to Ashton.) It's also kind of funny that the copy retails for more than quadruple the price of the original. But here's another thought - could the actual Bloods gang claim rights to the design? Might be tough to hold up in court...
