We were quick to lend our sympathies recently to Stevie Koerner, the Etsy designer whose necklaces were knocked off by Urban Outfitters. But it looks like Koerner's designs don't stand alone—a Racked commenter reminded us of Maya Brenner's similar necklaces—and it seems that other Etsy designers have been making them, too. A Regretsy writer snapped photos of the like-minded designs and asks, "Are all of these independent designers on Etsy stealing from each other? Or this is such a simple and generic idea that many people can come up with it at once?" [Regretsy, Previously]
