Let me know if you think this is right. I compare this to spending two years developing the best race car in the world. I've spent two years, made 70 modifications to the engine and all the different parts of the car, and tested it to make sure it met the highest safety standards. I tested it with multiple drivers on every different surface, in order to make sure it could be used easily, everywhere in the world. Then, somebody comes and copies the chassis of the car, based on the plans I developed. They say they did the same thing I did, even though nobody ever drove the chassis of that car.
Would that be a fair comparison?
