This month we delve into a touchy topic among science fiction fans - borrowing from a past work. If Terminator was inspired by two Harlan Ellison scripts from the Outer Limits does that invalidate the movie? If Joss Whedon ripped off River Tam from a bad anime does that reduce Firefly to garbage or make Whedon a no talent hack? Did these things even actually occur? That's what we discuss this month in Copy Cat August.
