Does Urban Outfitters steal designs?

There’s a spate of recent posts decrying Urban Outfitters and accusing the chain of stealing t-shirt small designers. Indies Johnny Cupcakes and Maddapollam both have said the chain is selling shirts that look amazingly similar to their products–coincidence–or conspiracy?
As a fan of the small indie sites that web ecommerce—and social networks–have empowered (think threadless, among others), I hate the idea big guys poach off the small ones and don’t get caught-Have no idea whether the accusations are true, but they seem to have had this issue crop up more than twice.
