Can Ideas be Stolen?

Many people come up with the same idea at the same time…

Can ideas really be stolen and then interpreted in exactly the same way that someone else intended? Pixabay

It appears that the concept of plagiarism has changed somewhat during the last decade or two. During my youth, it referred only to copying someone else’s text word for word. Now it appears that if two people have the same idea at more or less the same time, either can accuse the other of stealing their idea. I find that beyond absurd.
