i like to take ideas from others and factory lures i like and have good results with and then just modify them a lil bit or add something diffrent to make it stand out from the other guys using the factory lure - ill be honest - i get most of my lure patterns by flipping through a bass pro catalog and go from there - a few i just tinker around with out of boredom and others i like just from going "i wonder what happens when....."

Its just the name of the game.. ive used (and talked to) SolarFall as inspiration on patterns/colors, but i try to make everything my own. I'm sure he got his ideas from anothers work.. and so on. This late in the game, its hard to re-invent the wheel.
I've seen a few of my ideas that ive done with a certain "store bought" stencil be copied and done from a few well known Painters and Sellers on eBay with the exact same stencil. It's not hard to figure out certain sources of stencils, colors. Is it frustrating, a little, but what can you do? Its not worth flipping out on someone and sending nasty messages like some have (in the above posts) It's just uncommon for another painter to give props for an idea or color they saw and hijacked. The ones that do show a lot of class and humility.
A high percentage of us Painters are using the same exact paint and we all know what colors are available from those brands. So it seems you keep your friends close and your enemies closer

If the guy is using a name that you have been using for your bait, the only thing you can do is email him and try to work it out. If you don't have the name protected legally, there is nothing that you can do.

Did that Skeeter and did it in a nice way. I know there is no legal footing. My problem is there is a little thing called ethics.

I understand. Well then..... My recommendation is that you get a baseball bat and have a more in depth meeting.

No Skeeter, I'm a peaceful man. I believe in the Golden Rule. I am also an optimist; he'll get his somewhere down the line. Everything in life does come full circle.
