It is perfectly OK to 'copy' or in a positive word, learn from others. However, if it is just monkey see, monkey do type, then it is very sad. Hope our top scholars will not do that when they were sent oversea to learn. If cut and paste works, no need for brain. Hehe
Ya, think Sion is right. Monkey takes monkey owns. The one who composed and decided when to press the shutter should own the rights. The camera is just but a tool.
If Sion borrowed my camera and hv a nice babe shot, does it mean i hv the rights to the pictures? LOL
