The Emily apologists and their facile arguments are driving me crazy!
*People do stuff like this all the time. Best yet: “no one’s suing shakespear because he did a good job of stealing someone elses idea. the creators of emily the strange did too.”
*Similar: “EVERYTHING that is created has inspiration from SOMETHING.” Isn’t that a punch line to a joke about a Zen buddhist and a hot dog vendor?
*It’s consistent with the kind of stuff you do if you’re a DIY-er making stickers to put on your skateboard.
*You can’t copyright such and such.
Here’s a link for anyone who is still undecided: http://www.docpop.org/2008/12/06/the-elephant-in-the-room.html
