I had to read this for a class, but I enjoyed it. Also, I was very pleased to see the discussion about the learning process behind using existing creative works as a basic structure to build upon; this is a classic learning method that taught many literary and artistic masters and is fearfully discouraged in the digital age. Ironically, the corporate overlords who gleefully pursue those borrowing their works for creative gain only (not monetary gain) are the same ones who engage in culture borrowing themselves (like Disney's empire built on fairy tales and literary works).
