Some ideas and things I can see why people would get upset over not receiving credit.
"Stealing" a song on MySpace used to bother me. Now, not so much, anymore.
I mean, if you like a song and you want it on your profile or Ipod, or want to tell someone else about it, why shouldn't you?
Or a brand. Wet Seal, Hot Topic, American Eagle, Hollister, Rue 21, all of those.
I've just become so fed up and tired of people in general. I've had friends who would tell me where they got a shirt or piece of jewelry from, then I would go to the store to check it out and buy something. "Omg she totally copied me. She's stealing my identity." BLAH.
You cannot make every person happy, so why try to make ANYONE happy except yourself?
I have tried so hard to make people close to me happy. When they're unhappy because of a choice I make that doesn't EVEN EFFECT THEM, I try to fix it even if I don't necessarily like taking something back, then what do you know? Let's hold a grudge over Steigen.
I have seriously come to strongly dislike the human race. Call me a hypocrite, I don't care. Everyone is.
Then there is the aspect of generalization. Not everyone is a hypocrite. Not everyone is bad. You shouldn't "strongly dislike the entire human race" because of a few people. Everyone has their problems. Everyone has a bad time. You'll get over it. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.
Perhaps I've become so ignorant that anything anyone says to me is absolutely meaningless. I'm ignorant of my own character, whatever it is. There is a difference between truth, and being a straight up smart ass who likes to put someone else down, even if it is unintentional.
Why have I become so negative?
Human nature! I've become more and more selfish the older I've gotten. Sometimes that's the way it works. I love and care for my friends and family, but if people take issue with me and the way I am, fuck 'em.
Once you get out of high school things won't be so bad. College is much more carefree and laid back. You'll be too worried about your future/studying/having a great time to care about assholes that claim you ripped them off even though they shop at the most homogeneous stores in existence.

I think they get annoyed because it's like taking part of someone's identity, something they worked to pick specifically for themselves.
That's why I get annoyed.

Well, at least in my case, that's because I don't like it when so many people listen to my favorite songs. It's not that you're copying it, to me...it's just bothersome when you post them places. That's what makes songs popular and overplayed.
And the difference is that friends care, and know the person enough so think (s)he is great and sometimes be envious, I guess. -shrug-

You asked what the difference is between a stranger and a friend. What makes taking things different.
And...when you "copy" things, I think it bothers people because there are products like it you could get, but you choose to get EXACTLY what they have. Do research on products. It'll make you happier in the long run, anyway.
