Ripping Alert!!!

category: general [glöplog]
well, as said before.. being totally original is quite nearly impossible in this day and age. You are always inspired by stuff around you..

for example, this is pretty impressive.

ouch ... the TBL starstruck / dstrukt.com ripp-off actually disappoints me.

Actually the dstrukt thing is dated later than Starstruck; who knows who ripped who then?

Hey guys, TBL may have ripped them off, but they ripped off Chuck Palahniuk! Two wrongs make a right, right? ;)

There is just a lot of people doing that kind of style, well, there used to be, I tried to think the names of those guys, but I forgot. It's just kind of an old trend at this point :P

Yeah, i know it's old, but it seems like a lot of people are still fond of it :)

Reminds me of the copy - no copy era with pixelled painting on amiga beginning of the 90's
when everybody painted dragons, naked woman or copied boris vallejo :-)

magic: since it made Danny say "farewell and fuck you" rather than "'till next time", not quite the proper case.

i think idea ripping is fair enough.

I know I do it all the time, no regrets!

I believe thec has got it right:
copying something to create something creative to share: ok, copying something to create something which makes money (advertising or such): shait.

How can you justify stealing someones creativity and selling it? It's like pimping off babies! At least wait 20 years :\
