Difference between copying-lifting and inspiration

I don't know exactly :-).

But, ever since I came to Cyprus, I have observed two more copies-insipirations in Indian cinema from the rest of the world.

In the first week of coming to Cyprus, I was getting bored of watching greek tv channels. But, most of these greek channels feature some English movies in the nights.

This was about one movie I saw then named Dead Poet's Society starring Robin Williams and others.

One of Chopra's romantic musicals, 'Mohabbatein' which looks similar in more than plot with the Robin Williams' movie.

Can we call this inspiration, copying.. ???
Google Search: dead poet's society mohabbatein

And, another instance was a song in a telugu movie 'Varsham', which became hugely popular in Andhra Pradesh was actually copied from a greek song called 'Sarampel'. Only after coming to Cyprus, I realised this.

Ignorance is bliss :-D.

Personally, I feel inspiration is positive where as copying is somewhat should be discouraged either by law or by society.

Gmail - Invitations

Gmail, started like an April Fool joke on 1st April, 2004.

I was desperately looking for an invitation then. I managed to get an invitation after two months since it was launched. Gmail is still a fascination for the net republic.

Today, I've got 50 invitations to offer. If any one needs one, please contact me.
