Thievery corporation

Here's a fascinating new website guaranteed to encourage rage at big business. You Thought We Wouldn't Notice monitors design rip-offs, where small-time designers have had their creations copied by corporations without any acknowledgement. Some of the thieves aren't exactly huge, but it's a fine illustration of the lack of scruples that businesses of any size will employ in their quest to make a fast buck.
This is a trip into the murky world of intellectual property rights, something which will hardly cover the works of "anonymous" artists such as the infamous Banksy whose daubings are probably illegal anyway.
The site is still new, but is well worth checking out from time-to-time if you want to know whose goods you might want to boycott.
