This situation applies to a great many fields that center around
"intellectual property". For example, you routinely hear about people who
send draft screenplays to movie companies that are rejected only to have a
similar movie come out from that studio a few years later.
Tom Lehrer had a song many years ago that said: "...plariarize,
plagiarize, plagiarize; let nobody else's work evade your eyes." (or a
variant of that.
The only time that you are NOT doing risky things is when you are dead.
