Do good artists copy? Do great artists steal?

I don't think they do, friends. If you copy then you're a copier. If you steal then you're a thief. There's nothing great about that. Attributed to Pablo Picasso, the saying, "Good artists copy, great artists steal", has become a commonplace philosophy in many circles today, but I never bought into it nor do I now. The greatest artists create. They pioneer, explore, they discover new roads and new worlds. They don't duplicate, they originate. They innovate.

Adrian Foster, aka Skynet our webmaster extraordinaire, published an excellent commentary today on the forums. Here's a video he attached to his topic. It's Steve Jobs musing on this thinking of http://www.cassidashop.com/cialis-5-mg copying and stealing, and with all due respect of course, needlessly and erroneously perpetuating an unhealthy attitude and philosophy towards what it means to be an artist.
