Default Don't have a cow on me!!!

I just wanted to ask - I'm not looking for a hot topic here....

Do you think it's appropriate to use someone else's layout to enter a magazine contest? I mean - you change everything, but use the same layout?!

If you changed everything, how is it the same? There are only so many ways to set up a layout, before it's all been done before - right?

I would NOT do it to enter a magazine contest, but that is just me.

I guess that depends. There are hundreds of sketches out there that people use all the time. I don't think it would be a big deal as long as they picked their own color combo, stamp set, accessories, etc. I think that would make it pretty much their own.

Using layouts is fine if EVERYTHING else is changed. No one can claim ownership to a layout, IMHO.

There are limited ways to be completely original. There are times when I think that I've come up with something that is totally my own and come to find out it's been done! As long as you aren't copying exactly and plagiarizing on purpose, what else can you do?

We can't "own" a layout . . . can we? It's the design we create with colors, patterns and pictures that make the layout unique. I think it's a-o-k.

I agree with what everyone else has said so far.

But, on the other hand, there are some ideas that are truly unique and we know who originated them ~ such as Cambria's tri-fold cards, or Michelle Wooderson's tent-topper cards. I think it would be wrong to submit copies of these types of cards.

I think it totally depends. If it is a very clever layout that you have not seen before, then I think that it is not ok, unless you get permission from that artist. If it is an everyday run of the mill layout---I think it is fine.

I know I try to find neat new ways to create a card....I would be pretty bummed if someone took my design and submitted it, esp if it was an intricate design..KWIM?
