Hi Markus

I understand - you're not copyrighting the idea. It would help if you
made this clear on your site, as it gives the impression that your
project is your original idea, and this is what you're copyrighting.

I think your idea is very similar to mine from a couple of years back,
in my newscartoon project:

Sorry to sound so picky, but I've nothing against people taking ideas
so long as they give credit. And after all this is what you ask for in
your CC license.
