Can you offer many examples of things that Horner has stolen, then? It seems to me the words "Horner" and "Thief" have become almost synonymous due to the huge issue people make out of all the aforementioned examples. But when I pause and think over it, I can't myself think of that many more exept from some obvious cribs from Prokofiev, e.g. Troy, when Horner was working under severe time constraints as a replacement composer. All in all, though, I think I could probably name more things that John Williams has stolen or even Hans Zimmer probably.
