LOS ANGELES—Finally! A little business, behemoth retailer knock-off story with a happy ending. See how Urban Outfitters responded to Elena Coleman of TOMTOM's accusations.

NEW YORK—This is how Occupy Sandy is using Amazon's wedding registry to donate everything from flash lights to refrigerators and how you can too.

CHICAGO—Popular Etsy vendor GaudyGod is giving up women for good. Women's clothes, rather, so get the items for ladies on sale now.
