Judge John Hodgman

Cos-plagiarism

Samantha brings the case against her sister Vanessa. They regularly do cosplay and attend steampunk conventions together. Several cons ago, Vanessa came up with the idea to use one of Samantha's dresses for a steampunk version of the Stephen King character Carrie. But, she never made the costume. For this year's Steampunk Halloween convention, Samantha wants to use the dress and go as Steampunk Carrie. But Vanessa says that since it's her idea, she should be able to do it.

Thank you to Caroline Barba for naming this week's case! To suggest a title for a future episode, like Judge John Hodgman on Facebook. We regularly put out a call for submissions.
