    This is a site for anyone who has ever had their work stollen by another designer.

    You thought we wouldnt notice...

    Some of these aren't exactly stealing... but some of them are really blatent.

    I remember designing a website for a well know Scottish hotel. Less than a month after it was launched some hotel had not only copied the design but all the HTML and left our company name at the top of the code!

    Hi David,
    Welcome along to Design Forums! :D
    and that's shocking! was you able to get them to take it down? did you have to take any legal action?

    Nah, we just laughed it off and looked at it as a compliment.
    'Talent borrows, genuis steals' and all that.

    Cool, I guess if your client felt the same way then it's up to them.
    I've recently been accused of copying the design for this very site from another forum, naturally I was very offended as this design took me a long time, and a lot of work! So interested to hear how people have dealt with such issues :)

    hmm, probably best not to tell us Greg - you dont want to get into any bother!

    I for one know how this design developed as i saw it - certainly no lifting of another design!

    I dunno how you could 'steal' a forum design anyway!?

    "You put the avatar on the left and the message on the right just like we do - I'll be speaking to my lawyer"!?!

    Haha, yeah!
    I think it was just a minority who felt the designs looked similar, I personally think they're very different, and Design Forums is very unique, since defending the design and showing them where my design originated (actually on a personal project for a job board - www.ukwebdesignjobs.co.uk) I haven't heard anymore from them, and I never actually received an e-mail just found the thread when checking referring sites in the stats for DF.

    the colour scheme is reminiscent of another forum, I know the one you mean.

    The comment that this was like another forum was stupid. Its nothing like it at all.
