You remember the thread from yesterday when we discussed whether or not it was OK to pirate a game or not ? 

The funny thing about "copyright protection" is that "it grants the creator of an original work exclusive rights for use and distribution" but the good news is that concepts do not remain exclusive to copyright holders ...

Which further begs the question, do indies really need an existing IP to advertise their games when they could create spiritual successors instead ?
