->''"Our first stop on the Rip-Off Train begins in 2001, when a spinoff of Bungie (yes, ''[[HeAlsoDid that]]'' Bungie, of ''Halo'' fame) channeled their love of the hit manga and anime ''Anime/{{Ghost in the Shell}}'' into an ambitious third-person shooter-slash-melee combat game... The result is sorta like ''Ghost in the Shell''! Except without, y'know, all the ambiguity and intrigue and intellectualism...''Ghost in the Shell'' was great for its lofty ideas and biblical symbolism, and also for its striking visualization of a cyberpunk dystopia; ''{{VideoGame/Oni}}'', and we might as well throw Rare's two ''VideoGame/{{Perfect Dark}}'' games in this while we're at it, sorta nails the latter while completely ignoring the former. Oni's protagonist is like an Americanized doppleganger of ''Ghost in the Shell''[='=]s Major Kusanagi, but while Kusanagi personified the series' trademark sense of Creator/WilliamGibson-esque philosophy, Oni's Kusanagi impostor roils about in a boilerplate Creator/TomClancy novel of gub'mint corruption, replete with your prototypical bullshit backstory."''

->'''Chris''': I think thereís only one way to say it: ''Smallville'' has done an episode that rips off ''Film/TheMatrix'', and it is currently the year 2011.\\
'''David''': Writer Jordan Hawley should actually, seriously consider a new line of work. And Chris, whatís truly amazing about this episode is that it rips off ''The Matrix'' ó itself a gigantic rip-off of Creator/GrantMorrisonís ''[[TheInvisibles Invisibles]]''. If they just skipped the middlemen and ripped off Morrison instead, Iím pretty sure Iíd be singing this episodeís praises.

->''"''Film/TheIsland'' ended up becoming an inauspicious way to kick off a career in movies, particularly when {{DreamWorks}} and [[Creator/MichaelBay (Michael) Bay]] were sued for copyright infringement by the makers of the low budget Ď70s sci-fi film ''[[{{Film/Clonus}} Parts: The Clonus Horror]]''. You may remember the eerie similarities between ''The Island'' and ''Clonus'' being detailed extensively on this very site. And if you donít remember that, you may recall hearing about it on ''Cracked'' when they shamelessly copied my comparison screenshots without permission (itís ironic, because the article about rip-offs is itself a rip-off!)."''

->''"Creator/ShiaLaBeouf recently stole the spotlight by stealing an entire screenplay. He 'plagiarized' the script for his short film ''[=HowardCantour.com=]'' from Daniel Clowes' comic ''Justin M. Damiano'', in the same way settlers 'short-changed' Native Americans for the island of Manhattan. [[InsultToRocks But he paid less]]. He stole the entire comic, scene for scene, line for line, word for goddamn word. It is impossible to overstate how directly he ripped it off. I've used photocopiers that make less direct reproductions. When you read the title "''[=HowardCantour.com=]''," you've already experienced most of Shia's contribution to the project. The only other alterations were things like changing the bagels the characters eat into cookies. That's the level of cinematic insight Shia brings to a creative project: liking cookies."''
