Plan behind the business of some copy cats, i.e. brothers from Berlin

I´ve recently read many post on techcrunch, wired and venturebeat, and wondered how bold/perky a person can be. Just to steal the ideas of young entrepreneurs. Exactly from the ones, that have spend years of thinking, education and generating ideas to create a start-up to make the world a little bit better. People who spend work and money in the realisation of their dreams. But some people obviously don´t have any scruples to just copy these ideas/ businesses to make fast profit. They even copy single details like buttons, color schemes and layout of their victims. Wrapp and AirBnB are just the latest, most prominent ones.

I´ve wondered what their business model must be, because innovation and good morals don´t seem to play an important role.

I´ve come to the conclusion, that it seems, that they view their start-ups just as a vehicle for financial transactions in terms of the snow ball principle. And additionally they seek to sell their clones to the originals/the companies who seek for market penetration. This of course seems obvious for most people. But i don´t get the point why they can do this without consequences/make so much money from this behaviour. The wide majority just don´t seem to care and tolerate their obvious aggressiveness!??? Invest money, hire many people, copy the concept/steal customers, and sell the whole thing for a lot more money they´ve invested. Poor Internet....Poor world...

I luckily didn´t suffer from such copy cats. But i want to raise my voice because my moral values don´t go along with this misery. I hope i can unravel some of this bad intentions/ business concept over here.

 

Cheers :)
