Don't allow copying of concept and ideas

I've seen a lot of photos here having the same concept and idea.

Examples

1. colored pencil as a zipper
2. book/magazine folding the pages to a heart shape.

Why can't we report this? it is not productive to copy and copy idea of another photographer...let them do their thing and think..

Angelo, I think people see ideas and take them on as a challenge. I know more than once I have thought "WOW what a great photo, I wonder if I could do that" I also look at the images of the book / hearts and pencil zippers and can see how each photographer puts their own personality and twist on it.

If we disallow photos of things people have already taken photos of, we wouldn't be able to allow new photos on the site at all.

yes if they will not copy the exact position, material, color etc. but, they completely duplicate the photo...

And, of course, the question would be who is copying who? I don't mind different takes on themes, but am getting bored with the number of duplicates there seems to be.

same theme is acceptable but duplicating the same position, material, color and composition is not productive at all...
