Copying Vs. Actual Copying

Its been brought to my attention lately alot of talk about people who copy others sets.  I think it is defintely a problem that is going around…..but I see another problem arising from it.   Its becoming a witch hunt.   And people who AREN’T actually copying anything are going to get caught in it.

Let me clarify.  Just because someone has the same “style” as another person, does not mean they are copying.

Its a big world out there people….and on a site with limited items to use,  which is set up like a social network as well….you’re bound to run into people that do one of the following:

1.  Use an item you use.

2.  Use an item in the same way you used it.

3.  Make a set about the same thing as you.

4.  Have the same artistic style or fashion sense as you.

There are billions of people in this world.  The idea that you are the only one that can come up with a good idea is ludicrious!  One thing to say:  Get over yourself!

Several times I’ve come up with something I thought was genius,  only to discover someone else had already done it.   Bummer?  yeah.  But its not their fault or mine.  That’s just the way it is.

If you can’t handle that or don’t understand it…maybe you should take a break for awhile.

Again,  if someone makes the SAME EXACT set as you and passes it off as their own…that’s one thing.  But sharing visions and styles and same objects is NOT copying.   Its a big world!  Get out of your bubble.

On another note.  If you really need to report a copied set,  here’s a great gal who’s helping to clear up the mess.   Just make sure you’re not over reacting first.
