Copying is in our very nature.
We do it with language, with the clothes we wear, we even do it with our dance moves! Ideas are everywhere and people, much like sponges, absorb everything!
Copying is the most basic step to learning.
Basically, originality is kinda overrated.
Copying is rooted into our very essence. It's what always makes us borrow a thing or two when creating something new, But that's not a bad thing. It means we're more connected with everyone than we credit ourselves.
Because creating is a collaborative process.
Copying does have tremendous value - it's our way of sharing and creating.
But it doesn't have any monetary value. You can make infinite copies of the same file. That doesn't make you the author of the piece, nor does it equal stealing.
That's why it's called copying!
Making all this happen takes a lot of time and effort. We’re not whining about it, because we do it out of love. But we do try to work as hard as possible and make the best videos we possibly can. And that gives us very little time for other things. So we’re relying on your help to share Copy-me with the world.
A donation would be really appreciated, but we plan on raising some capital and sending you all sort of goodies in return. If you like what we’re trying to accomplish and want more quality videos, we’d greatly appreciate your support. And you should know you’re in for a nice treat!
We have custom designed POSTERS, funky looking T-SHIRTS, encrypted USB FLASH DRIVES, 3D printed objects, and even the entire source project for you to download! So keep close and don't forget to drop by once in a while!
Just to get a feel of what you're in for.
A short documentary released about a year ago - by part of the same team.
It's kinda the precursor to this whole project.

Well, you'll just have to take our word for it, but we really don't have any hidden agenda.
We are an independent project and we do this out of love.
And seriously, we don't have an ulterior motive. We'd do it much smarter if someone would really pay us.
We're from Bucharest, Romania. So... somewhere in Eastern Europe. However, we do have an American English native speaking person doing the voice over, so no worries there!
