I'm not sure if you're trolling or just stupid, but I'll bite…

If I impersonate you I have not made a copy of you. The possibility of harm and loss is almost certain, as it is the ONLY reason to impersonate someone, and not at all speculative… Like a stolen credit card number doesn't make two credit cards. Stealing your work to publish as my own doesn't make two separate works. I feel stupid explaining this. You must be trolling. But I mustn't underestimate the stupidity of my fellow man. Assumptions are the mother of all fuckups, after all…
