3-7 My answer

I consider that imitation is a process of innovation. I personally think that it imitation is not only just copying, it is improving the thing already made. 

3-7 Partner's answer

She said no. She regards imitation is all about repurposing previously developed items while innovation adds value to a product. 

3-7 My answer after class

I’m still regarding that imitation could be innovation. Although which my partner said makes sense, but I personally think it could called innovation if something have same base with the previous item but improved a lot.
