Copyright alert: artist Zlatka Paneva has filed a lawsuit against Chris Burch's chain C.Wonder, claiming that the company used images of her works on a new line of products without permission.

You Thought We Wouldn't Notice, a blog dedicated to exposing "rips offs" of artists' work, posted images of Paneva's work next to platters produced and sold by C.Wonder (they do not appear to be on the brand's website currently). We've reposted them above—feel free to draw your own conclusions.
