Copying or Creatively Borrowing?

There was a discussion on facebook about where is the line crossed between copying and originality:

My thoughts are this:

There is nothing new under the sun and,
"If a piece is heavily inspired by another artist, respectfully give credit to them.
Also, on the other hand, no one can create something *exactly* like anyone else.  Nobody is exactly like you down to your background, life experiences, influences, and even body type (in the case of dance)…ext. And all those things (whether its apparent or not) can play role in your work"
-D. Locke

Copying is also a form of flattery. Just putting it out there...
