Adventures in Copyright: Really, Forever 21?

A reader sent in this tip--a Forever 21 T-shirt that says a bunch of nonsense in the exact same font and design as this Marc by Marc tote. We thought this was such a strange thing to copy. The tote bag is not even part of the main Marc by Marc collection, but a $28 "special item" available only at Marc by Marc stores alongside condoms and key chains. The tongue-in-cheek label hilariously reads "Jacobs by Marc Jacobs for Marc by Marc Jacobs in collaboration with Marc Jacobs for Marc by Marc Jacobs." The Forever 21 Tee says something about "heritage" and "California" and blah blah blah.
