Brand Poaching

Brand Poaching!  What it is and why it gets on my one last good nerve. Seriously though, it is often said that imitation is the highest form of flattery. That’s all well n’ good until someone totally rips your product or idea and fails to give you an ounce of credit. I have noticed this, particularly amongst black beauty brands and creatives.
