Target vs designers

Target seems to be trying very hard to get sued. It happened before when they introduced a chinese knock-off of the Emeco Navy chair, which I had the "pleasure" to inspect first hand. Crap, painted to simulate the satin finish in the aluminum, bad welds, pitting and a manufacturer error that causes all the chairs to lean to the left. Emeco sued and they added an additional slab at the back and they are now able to keep selling them. Now they aimed at the Nelson wall clock, even having a reference to George Nelson on the product description.... and it's even overpriced too! $79 for a chinese knock-off? that clock is not even woth $5.99! You decide.
