When is it ever good to copy? When is it a good time to copy? There appears to be a double standard in effect. Companies are duplicating other brands and designs that have already hit the market. As I was thumbing through the Vibe magazine the other day i noticed a pair of Fila sneakers that looked exactly like some Prada sneakers that have been around for an extended amount of time. Why do companies do this? They seem to be able to get away with such plagiarism if their product costs significantly less money, no one cares because they are no threat. However, that's still not right.
Why don't companies hire anyone with ingenuity anymore. Matter of fact if you are creative your services are at a premium (that's an insider tip). If someone worked for my company and presented me with a product that looked exactly like another companies product i would fire them just for bringing the spirit of copy cat into the building. I know when i was in school we got in trouble for cheating off someone else's paper or in college they use the fancy word, its called plagiarism. Someone please help me understand the rationale behind this. Ladies think of when Minolo Blahnik came out with the boots that look like timberlands and then Steve Madden made some just like it, or what about all these companies that duplicate the Gucci print and Coach print. If you just so happen to be into those kind of things wouldn't you want the best and not the inferior reproduction.
Maybe the competitive spirit is gone in America. Im about to start stealing other people articles, because im a writer and its easier that way. PSYCHE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My articles are better anyway.
