You thought I was kidding about "Great artists steal?"

Ryan Block of Engadget drills me a new one for stealing work from other artists to make advertisements for Apple. Ryan claims all these poor starving artists were ready to sue Apple for ripping them off. Frankly, it’s not like that at all. Most of these people are really grateful to us for using their ideas as inspiration. That’s because when Apple makes an ad using their ideas, their ideas suddenly become worth a huge amount more. Now some of these greedy a-holes also wanted us to pay them money for using their ideas. But come on. That would be like us paying them twice.
