    I am confused, there are only so many ways to make head for example or body of lets says a dog. Especially if you are trying to make a character your kids seen on tv. Like you were saying in your above article, lots of people “jump on the band wagon” to take part in a fad or what is popular at the time. If more than one person make the same character, and there is only so many ways to work “in the round” where is the line for copy write? Lets say I make a snoopy dog, someone else makes or has made one; since it is a character dog, they both look VERY similar. I make the nose and the body in just a small difference. The head is real close also, lets face it, they have to be pretty much the same if both parties are making the same character. Where is the legal and moral line? I have not “created” anything todate, I have however, seen a pattern and made it my own. MEANING: I once took a doll type, (size, shape, etc) and made it into another totally different doll. Had to change a ton of thing, but the basics were the same. Head size, body size, etc. But there are only so many ways to do a sc, dc, etc. And a head, is a head, is a head….. It should be stated here, all I did was gift my nephew with the toy for Christmas. But you would never know I started with the concept of another persons project. I believe that is the same as seeing the character on tv and from a pic making the ami protect with it. Sorry for the lengthy comment, but I am truly asking for your opinion on this. Thank you for all you do. And for the record, I would not EVER take someone else’s project and call it mine. What I have written above, I believe it makes it a totally different item in itself. What do you think?
