Inspiration and leveraging creative examples from Guru Awards
We had a question today from a blog reader who wanted to know more about using ideas and techniques they liked in the Guru Award courses.
Specifically, the concern was around visual plagiarism and how much--or little--they could use from the Guru showcase courses.
I thought Kevin's course and WOM blog post were good examples of inspiration leading to originality. In his post he mentions several people who inspired his final course. But even with that inspiration, he produced something creatively original.
So what do you think?
What kinds of advice or guidelines do you follow when searching for inspiration? What's fair game? What would "crossing the line" look like? Or can a line be crossed?
