As an example, my 14 year old son, who is very clothes conscience, wore a new sweater to school this week. He had several kids make fun of him. He said they make fun of his clothes alot, but it doesn't seem to bother him. However, if you read/hear all the media articles this week, what happened to him could have been considered bullying. But if the target of the teasing/bullying doesn't mind, is it okay?

yes and no.
I think the term "bully" is WAY over used now-a-days.
I think in some instances what parents are calling "bullies" is simply the "victims" lack of standing up for him/her self and putting an end to it. On the other hand there are actual cases of bulling in which the "victim" really is unable to stop the problem.
You can not put a blanket label on bulling.
