Of course, the polite words being used here in the "Universal Studios Camp" are...."Influenced" and "Parallel"....instead of "Ripped - Off."
Since Universal Studios has no imagination whatsoever to come up with its own original ideas, it apparently has well established...."Gentle Words"....to use in place of...."Rip - Off"....when they are called on an...."Idea Theft"....issue.
Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on Amazon.com...
And read these books at another location where Universal Studios executives and its stealth marketers won't be able to post negative, misleading (stealth marketed) reviews of the books via them purchasing candy and Rogaine Foam on Amazon.com (allowing them access to the Amazon book review section) and not actually buying and reading the books. I'll leave the other 150 global locations under wraps for now.
