In before the lock.
Please continue. I am entertained.
so tempting :’|
People have been copying (I use that term affectionately) other peoples ideas since cavemen painted on walls. As one person already put it, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I think some people have been unfair in saying that the OP’s new item is not going to be unique and original when they haven’t even seen it. And yes, if it’s a good design and does something new and interesting people are probably going to be inspired by it and try to do something similar.
Just stand by your product and focus on providing great support for your customers and creating new and exciting things. Don’t obsess over whether or not someone else is going to copy your design or steal your code. If you truly feel someone has done something they shouldn’t just notify support of your concerns and let them handle the rest.
^ that. And we use a lot of things somebody somewhere invented, for example slider, standard layouts, 600px etc. If all those things were patterned and perfectly protected things would be pretty much [language removed] up now. You use others people ideas but you don’t want anybody to use yours? It’s evolution and with uniqueness you feed it, so why be selfish?
