VG Plagiarism not Limited to Concept Art
Apparently a fairly notorious musical composer for videogames in Japan got officially busted for stealing tracks after a game was published using some music from Chrono Trigger.
Stealing the creative work of others is just low class to begin with, but I don't get why people always try to rip from the most popular sources?

Also, occasionally the popular examples steal from the small no-names. In my oppinion this is worse as the large company will make far more off the theft than the small company ever would by stealing from the large company.

I am sick of hearing about a rip every day. This needs to stop and people need to do something that will make people think twice about doing this.
I'm the guy that does his job! You must be the other guy!

now ripping form unpopular sources would be a new concept...
i didnt hear the tracs but chronotrigger/chronocross ost is great, i can imagine why someone aimed to imitate it.
Its hard to tell tho, it may not be the composers fault only, clients often want things similar to other products...
if you copy someones work 1:1 it sucks, sure thing.
However looking back a couple of years and looking at 90% of all mecha robots posted on us and european sites i can tell that japanese anime and manga mecha designs were ripped off BIG time... but in this case it is called inspiration of course...
Open your eyes, this is how the worl ticks, there are 10 copies of every good movie and most of the things you think that are original are based on thing you might not know. You think mikey mouse is original? sam fisher is original or the much older MGS series? or was the origin 007, and what is 007 based on?
Orininality is a luxery this world has only in very very limited amounths.

Open your eyes? yes, everyone knows it happens. it's just news, man.
Interesting, cause it's related to the field alot of people here work in.
And yeah, it's how things happen, but it's still a shame.
and Jason, yeah I saw that, pretty harsh. That guy went nearly (or totally?) bankrupt or something to pursue his invention, too.

I think the whole appropriation movement is quite interesting actually (still trying to understand it and it's motivations, though). But yes, it's quite depressing to see the amount of rips and swipes out there :/
