In Paolini's case, it means borrowing plot and themes from famous fantasy works and thinly masking them into his own 'derivative' book series.

But paolini is now a multi-millionaire and can tell his critics to suck it.

If you can figure out how to write a derivative series that sells millions of copies, I suggest you do it.

In other words: just write, and don't worry about what the critics say.
