    I think i get it......

    Because people are trained from birth to reproduce the behavior, mannerisms, lifestyle... etc etc of our parents/people that come before us, it feels natural for us to copy things.

    Think about it, Simon says, tracing, puzzles, acting out our favorite characters (pretending)... all are part of growing up, and all are a form of copying of some sort. We are trained from birth that copying is a normal part of being human and growing up.

    No wonder we have such a hard time understanding copyright! It goes against everything we've been taught as children...

    I think this is where I'm supposed to let loose with a "SOMEONE PLEEEEAAASSSEEEEEE, THINK OF THE CHILDREN!"
