I deal with this A LOT. It's incredibly annoying. Some of the imitators have gone to great lengths to duplicate my shots down to the last detail. Frustrating, but that's just the way it goes. On the other hand, I've had entire text pages of mine ripped off, and I mean paragraphs literally cut and pasted without a single word changed. That's a different story, and I can and do take action in those cases.

If someone really did duplicate your shot down to the last detail you could most likely pursue copyright infringement against them.

Remember George Harrison and "My Sweet Lord"? He wasn't even aware he stole "He's So Fine."
