Brands, paintings, photos, software, cars, comedians, logos, restaurants, games, memes, tech, bands.
Intelligence (of the artificial type). Even maple syrup?
One thought: Be yourself. An original is always worth more than a copy, even though “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” …per Oscar Wilde
