Is copying the most sincere form of flattery?

Yes, and surprisingly, increases the fashion industry’s sales.  I found this video on Ted TV about how copyright law’s grip on film, music and software hurts them in the long run, while fashion’s policy of being practically copyright free boosts innovation and sales.  Johanna Blakley talks about what all creative industries can learn from fashion’s free culture.

I highly recommend exploring TED TV if you haven’t already.  Why spend a million dollars to get advice from Bill Gates over lunch when you can watch one of his talks on Ted TV naked (if that’s your thing), in the privacy of your own home ?
