Talent imitates. Genius steals.
No argument from me there.
The thing is, the internet has made it easier than ever to find inspiration.
Stuck for idea? Go waste an hour trawling YouTube.
However the internet has also made it harder to hide the source of your inspiration.
When I got my iPhone the first app I downloaded was the free iPint.
At the time I couldn't believe that there was a very similar app called an iBeer.
Even harder to believe is the story which has now emerged that the iPint is in fact a rip off of iBeer.
Who'd have thought? Not me that's for sure.
