    Everything is stolen my friends. That's life. That's the shame we carry knowingly and unknowingly. But getting so successful after stealing the idea and making into a big empire is also a lot of work. Sometimes, the founder himself/herself don't know how to put those ideas into money-making-business.
    I am not supporting stealing. But getting insprired is one thing, and stealing is another thing.
    The whole truth we can never know....

    It's interesting to hear how others pronounce certain words and names. The NAtional BIscuit COmpany, or Nabisco, I typically hear pronounced differently. I know it's due to differences in how we pronounce things across the world, like how in the US we pronounce 'z' as 'zee' and not 'zed'.
    Just an odd thing I wanted to point out.

    With screenplays, production companies often reject them, unread, merely to protect against such copyright infringement claims. Still, there are plenty of instances where similar ideas arise at the same time and across many different industries. Activision's Atari hit Freeway and Konami/Sega's release of arcade hit Frogger were developed during the same timeframe, though neither influenced the other.

    In 1990 i was in a band and I came up with a riff to a song the singer had written, we put that song on a demo tape and sent it around various record companies and publishers in the U.K but nothing came of it, 5 years later i was at work when i heard that riff come on the radio, it was now the opening riff to a song called stupid girl by Garbage. Funny eh.

    Apple did probably rip off the idea for the iPhone, but not off that guy, but a lad in Finland who invented a smartphone back in 2003 and approached all the big phone and tech companies who turned down his idea as this was the time that the fashion in phones was all about the smallest most compact phones.
    Here is an article from 2003 about the phone.

    5:38 The MS-DOS source code was really not created from the scratch, but it was also not exactly stolen by Microsoft. Microsoft bought an operating system named QDOS (Quick and Dirty Operating System) and later 86-DOS from the Seattle Computer Products (SCP) that was owned by a man called Tim Paterson. This system was developed further by Microsoft as MS-DOS. The dispute is mainly if Tim Paterson has stolen something from CP/M. It is clear that 86-DOS (and also MS-DOS) is very similar to CP/M.

    Well wait a second, if as you claimed "some people" are STILL LOOKING FOR PROOF that Digital Research's code is in MS DOS how on earth do you figure that it was stolen? Sounds like you made a bogus video, or maybe you stole it from someone else, after all I'm still looking for proof that you stole it from somebody. Digital Research was a big loser in the PC software world, but that was their own fault. Microsoft bought the code for MS DOS from a small Seattle software company after IBM received a cold shoulder from DR.

    MS-DOS was bought by Gates for around 10.000$. Originally called Q-D.OS (Q-D meaning "quick" and "dirty"). So you cannot accuse Microsoft for plagiarism since they didn't build the operating system themselves.
    And no, it wasn't a copy of the source code from CP/M. It was just an OS of similar philosophy.

    If someone has a good idea for a product, it doesn't mean he can earn millions on it. Making a profitable product requires much more than just idea... and that is why those people failed, they had just and idea, not because someone copied them. If those ideas weren't copied, they would probably be forgoten.

    This is bullshit the recipe for whiskey is older than the English settlement in North America it's Scottish and Irish in origin not
    American it's listed in the history as early as 1405 ,so how exactly does Jack Daniels steal a recipe that's been common knowledge for 3 to400 years before he was born? Idiot fact check before you post your fake news ! Whiskey is mash and water fermented and turned into sugar water that's cooked turned into steam and is distilled with grain alcohol being the end result! It's been made the world over for thousands of years idiot!
