Crazy English on Japanese Clothing

Japan is rightly famous for its crazy English used to give a touch of the exotic to clothes and accessories.

We all have our own particular favorites of misspelled and grammatically incorrect English as well as the plain bizarre.

Here's a recent example which takes song lyrics from Minute By Minute by the Doobie Brothers:

You Will Stay
Just To Watch Me,
Darlin'. Wilt Away On Lies
From You


Does the wearer know he is sporting Doobie Brothers' lyrics? Does he care? Is it copyright infringement?
