Come on,admit it, how many times do we actually do this everyday? It has become so normal that we even forget that is it even illegal or is it a copyright?… The truth is, if one artist comes up with an idea of an image, and another person reuses that image in a different manner, it can not be considered as an illegal or copyright as this helps other people with bringing out better ideas, and without this, we wouldn’t be able to have access to internet used and today we have many social networks alike, such as Facebook, Hi5, Twitter… These websites may have one purpose, but each manages and functions in few different ways, well it is pretty obvious that one of these social network producers had help from other social network producers!!!…..This is the part where this build an understanding of how things can be made and done.
Let’s say if we all had an assignment to do at uni, and we were told to use references, and we were not allowed to copy it, how would universities or schools manage? If there was no WIKIPEDIA or GOOGLE, we would not have enough knowledge to even carry on, we would be left amazed thinking, how on earth does this damn thing work!.
My heart says as long as its done with good intention and you not EXACTLY copying anyone and your using it to broaden you mind, it should not be considered a bad thing, every little thought has been put into something but gives other a bigger imagination and create into something bigger.
Basic Elements Copy; Transform; Combine … other wise there would not be any mobile rivals, Blackberry vs Apple, O2 vs GiffGaff and etc.
