Totally and completely ripped off by someone I trusted and respected as a friend and colleague. Wow….just completely blindsided. People never fail to amaze me. Feeling angry and vulnerable. It is one thing when it is a stranger inspired by your work, another when it is someone you thought you had a relationship with nearly copying it. I know that you can’t copyright a word or an idea, but DAMN. When you are as talented as this person is, why do you have to steal inspiration from someone else? I will not out them here, but I hope that they see this and know how pissed off and hurt that I am.
