Another Rip of My Design…

**This post has been edited for content lol.***
It has gotten to the point where I hate to even check my stats. Seems like everyday someone is stealing the site design, changing credits, and forgetting to change the friggn’ destination links. Guess what cool guy? Everytime you or someone clicks on a link on your site from the code that you so rudely ripped,.. it shows up in my stats.

Most of the time they are crappy rips from people who don’t understand CSS enough to fix the tags or anything else. Like this cool guy here.. (site has already taken down infringing design.) He ripped my design, deep dark blue, and totally screwed up the layout…, but he did make sure to change the footer to say that he designed the layout.. Too bad he forgot to change the tag that is my original FOOTER, “Site Design Copyright OneMoreRevision.com | Ideas, Passion, Talent by {omr}.”

While I do feel a little flattered that someone liked the design enough to use it, it is hard to be happy with someone taking what you molded into a piece of yourself and claiming it as there own. Looks like this guy TarverGraphics had a hard time understanding that my designs are held copyright, (except for the ones I publicly release.) The takedown notice was handled rather fast, but the person who ripped it has not yet even sent an apology this way; I was at least expecting a “Sorry man, I was testing it blahblahblah..

I would have felt a lot better if someone had sent me an email saying, “I really liked the menu navigation etc.., and took your css/html to play around with it.” Hell, I would have been more than happy to let anyone continue playing with my design if they learned from it. But to just ignore it totally has kinda rubbed me the wrong way. Is it really asking too much for an explanation? I am not the bad guy I might appear to be. I almost cried watching 300 for goodness sake.

    This is terrible. I’ve published a Theme for WordPress and found everyday a site which changed the credits in the footer. I have no idea of that. Sorry for my bad english. I am from germany.

    btw: i like your work for wordpress themes. Waiting for the theme of your last single design.

    @ Karsten: thank you for your comments. It does not feel too good to have someone else take credit for your work.

    I will be releasing the simple design layout (v5) in the next week hopefully if time permits. I will be sure to contact you when it’s ready! thanks again..
