I don't really understand why people (mainly on the internet) take issue with people "stealing" topics. You don't own the copyright on covering something owned by someone else. I understand taking someone's writings/script as your own but if you do your own research it's very much valuable as new eyes and/or ears engage with the topic, which can further the collective knowledge on it.
