Experience-copying, also known as Place-copying or Experience-stealing is the act of duplicating ones place, without credit or recognition to the original creator. Experience-copying can also mean stealing the idea, or concept of one experience and adding to your own.
Welcome to the Neighborhood of Robloxia is a well-known experience that copied the theme of 1dev2's Welcome to the Town of Robloxia and took some GUIs and scripts from the original experience. Experience-copying often happens with experiences that are uncopylocked, but could also happen because of exploits in the Roblox Client However, it is no longer possible to steal server-sided scripts from the client, due to the FilteringEnabled security feature now being enabled in all places. Users copy places to gain visits or to manipulate other new users to believe that they are the original owner.
