Copying someone else’s work – WHY??

Now I know how to respond to someone who says: “Oh, I don’t want to buy anything from you, I’m just going to steal your idea“, thanks to Weeks Ringle of Fun Quilts. This post at Whipup will come with me to craft fairs from now on!

Be sure to read through the comments; some very good observations, and a very nice response to one commentor that thinks it’s okay to copy someone else’s work “because she’s not selling it”.

Copiers need to read this post found via Hanna at IlBloggoWhy being yourself matters

And listen to Ellen Langer, “Reinventing Yourself Through Mindful Creativity“.
