Report 2010 Asian Games opening ceremony live chat in Asian Games / Bids Posted November 20, 2010 To you, everything is a rip-off of Athens 2004, and Athens 2004 is the most original Olympics with copyright over every aspect of it. So henceforth, no other opening ceremony shall have two dancers hugging each other. thanks for your conclusion, but plez dun simply modified my opinions... To me, Athens 2004 of course was the most original and creative opening on certain aspects(performances)... BUT i never said everything is a rip-off of Athens 2004 Judging on that scene, that performance seems a copycat to me... the atmosphere was too similar to the Athens one... well, anyone could have different opinion. For an example, both athens 2004 and beijing 2008 were using drums in their percussion performance. but i wont said beijing copied athens, becoz they performed the instruments in different way. Unless London 2012 again plays their percussion instruments with the LED lights during countdown moment... then i would said, "oh.. thats a rip-off bla bla bla.." then somebody will come up with "So henceforth, no other opening ceremony shall have percussion play. Full stop." so, can u now differentiate on how ppl judging the copycat issue based on the situation??
