Competition doesnt mean that you can exactly copy someone elses designs, just that you can make competing products. You're essentially upset because you can't buy a Lambo from a Kia dealer. You can't but Heroes VI, but there are hundreds of other similiar games to choose from.

I graduated with Honors last year, went through a 6-month internship (we're going to hire you on full time and pay you market rate! Honest! It's just this is a bad time right now, we don't have the authorization for more manpower, we'll keep you on as an intern though...) - found another job with that experience easily enough.

Now with only a year's experience, I'm getting headhunter E-mails once or twice a month.

Interesting historical note; "Just following orders" has totally been an acceptable excuse.

Most people point to the Nuremburg trials when making the comparison, but every single person convicted in those trials was in a position of authority actively giving orders. No-one was even put on trial for being a front-line guard.
