To a certain point, is copying justifiable?
If it's obvious then no. But It depends, there's a fine line between copying and inspiration. If you feel good about it and believe it's from your own perception then I think it's fine.
all creative work, art, music, fashion, film, or design, are based on the creative work of previous generations. but we must think for ourselves and build on top of past accomplishments and contribute to the lineage.
Yes if you do it in moderation, if it fits the project's needs, if you can't find a better solutions yourself, and if you credit the originator.
Honestly no, there's still plenty of original ideas that are out there. A person can start off copying a certain composition, but their own experiences and personality should be able to pull it into a completely different direction and come up with something new.
I feel copying is only justifiable if I was working for a company who uses the same logos in all designs.
I believe copying is justifiable as long as credit is made to the original creator.
it never is, you can look at things and be inspired by them but you always have to do original stuff
In my mind no
We regularly use old military equipment from around the world and old horse tack parts as inspiration so in those instances I think it is OK. We are not trying to re-create these items but rather learn their purpose and how they were constructed. Then we can see if we can improve on it, produce it for a fair price and make it useful for today. This gear, especically from WWII was very well made and in some cases obsolete because the machinery to make a lot of it is long gone.
We have been at this for 13 + years and our designs get goobled up quite a bit. The small new comers and even the huge retailers like Old Navy, Urban Outfitters, Fossil, etc. have copied our designs. It's the nature of the business and short of imposing some sort on Non-compete we try to live by the saying, "A high tide floats all boats."
No. I do take certain ideas from others but I always make it my own by bringingmy inventions to each design.
As the saying goes, there is nothing new under the sun. Outright copyists have no creative fire, and so must rely upon their craftsmanship to make things. We cannot belittle that craftsmanship, as they are often the ones who hold the threads of the fashion world together. Those of us with lots of ideas have millions more tucked away in our heads, so let the copyists indulge. No matter.
the fashion industry thrived upon copyists in the days before mass communication. Designers and sketch artists would fill the halls of the haute couture shows in Paris, and rush back to America to make and do their best, and worst efforts at mimicking the French houses. It's all part of our deal and there's very little that can be done about it.
No. Influence and improvement might be OK though
Maybe not copying but inspiration
That is tricky question to answer. In reality there are very few people in the world who are truly capable of coming up with unique and original ideas. There is hardly any truly original design. That being said, I think that there are numerous ways to take "ideas" and "structures" from various existing designs, merge them together, and create a unique work.
I do not believe that blatant copying is ever justified and is unacceptable. It just proves that the person doing the copying has no real ability to create a solution that is needed for the problem that has been presented.
