Why do people say you can't use their work as a referance?

Most likely because of people who trace, or do what I like to call "obsessively referencing" which is just copying without tracing and saying it's original.

I would say it's more because they had put a lot of time and effort into their work. :) And it can be frustrating when you see some badly traced works, which are based on something you did. Though I always thought of it as a compliment when people wanted to use my works as reference of any kind. So... can't say I get them 100%, when they are against it. d:

Oh, wow, I need to go to bed.
My grammar skills decided to kill themselves 20 minutes ago. And now they are rotting.

I've heard of someone in New Zealand who tried to get a patent for the wheel. That thing was invented more than 10,000 years ago. I think it's safe to say the deadline has passed.

Those people may not be as paranoid as you think. You'd be surprised what some people would steal.

Fuck it, I'ma copyright orgasm. Each time you come, I get paid a royalty. If you don't wanna pay, you just don't have to come while you're having sex.
