I understand. I would get upset if someone didn't credit me for something. d:

There are very complex laws around derivative works (imitations of other things, like if I drew my own version of Mickey Mouse on paper) and parodies.

For example, derivative works are not fully the creations of the person who made them. They can only be counted as that person's intellectual property to the extent that they are different from the original.

Examples:

1. A Miss Build-a-Bearville Pageant is based on Miss (insert location name here) such as Miss America, Miss France, and other national or regional Miss whatevers. If five people make Miss Build-a-Bearville pageants, they are likely to have arrived at the same idea by themselves.

2. The annual "50 Most Beautiful People" is posted in...err...whatever magazine does that (Time?) Three members of this site make "50 Most Beautiful Bears" or "[insert some number here] Most Beautiful Hairdos of Build-a-Bearville." They're imitating the magazine, not each other.

3. I go to the Bearywood Mall in Build-a-Bearville and I make a skirt that is pink with purple stars and a lavender paw belt. Someone else goes to the Bearywood Mall and makes a skirt that is almost exactly the same, because we both happen to like purple and pink clothing, and want skirts with stars and paw belts.

I run into this other person in the game, and both of us have characters wearing the same skirt. I can't say that she copied my skirt, because neither of us saw the other's until that moment.

4. I love Peter Gabriel music. Suppose that someone else on these forums also likes it.

Gabriel and his daughter come out with a new song, and we both hear it on the radio at different times in a week. Each of us makes a parody of this song and posts it to the forums. But neither of us read the other's parody before writing our own.
EXACTLY! I'm glad we're on the same page. I hope others are too. :0)

Not neccesarily the song challenge person. I'm saying anyone. Up to what RainRibbon said...there are writers challenges EVERYwhere. We have them on WI, animalcrossingcommunity, facebook, magazines, ect. You can't exactly claim and idea like that because it's been around for a long, long time.

You might have just thought of it, and not seen it anywhere else. As maybe the other owners of threads similar to yours have. (excluding the song owner)

Not trying to be rude or anything, I just want to say the facts.

Writing challenges have been around since writing began . Did you know that Valentine's Day poetry supposedly came about because of a writing challenge started by Charles d'Orleans (14th-15th century)? It may be a myth, but it's pretty cool anyway.

I didn't "claim" Anything. I simply stated that I started the writers challenge ON BI. And I know for a FACT that the other two challenged saw mine first and that sparked a fad. So yes, I believe I did start the challenge fad, at least partway.

I'm aware of that issue, too. If someone has taken something off of Google images, was not its original creator, and then claims that they made it (and worse, that someone else stole it from them!), that's plagiarism.

I'm not neccesarily saying you did. AWESOME that you started a 'fad,' it truly doesn't matter.



@rainribbon :: Did you just randomly memorize that and it's just like *snap* and cool facts come out, or did you google it.

Randomly memorize what? The thing about Charles d'Orleans? Neither, really.

I was taught it, and I remembered it because I found it interesting. It may also be useful to me some day for my job, which requires that I have a lot of knowledge that others find random and useless.

Cool! I'm locking that random bit of knowledge in my mind for someday when I might need it...most likely on here teaching about writing challenges. hehehe

Idk if we're allowed to ask, but what's your job? (or goal for job) I want to be a graphic artist.

I'll take the conversation to PMs, so it's not going off-topic here.
