    I don't see why that was even done. Why take A over B?

    a.) Illegal - default vB purple images - ugly
    b.) Legal - custom images - perhaps images that blend into black/orage, not purple?

    that's simple... why do Hyundai's resemble Toyota's? The answer is that you choose to look like a superior product in an attempt to gain favor... or, in this situation, you want to look like vb because vb is ranked higher than IB.

    I think the idea is, some people perfer a vbulletin look, than a ipb look, i do, reason i got a vb.

    But for some people who can't afford it, they may look at aulturnative ways.

    The html isn't the same, so if the images were to be removed, and a non-jelsoft owned pics replaced, sure no legal problems can occure then. or even do it so that their are no images included.

    Matt the URL was posted by nuno is not a Jelsoft employee.

    The actions to deal with piracy are no different than those of any company trying to protect their property from unlicensed distribution.

    I thank Jelsoft for ignoring my request for a link so that I may take action without it getting aggressive.

    Don't laugh too hard now.

    Secondly, before skins are submitted to our database, users must agree to our TOS which state that their skin contains no copyrighted material or that they have permission to use any copyrighted material. If a user agrees to this TOS, then as the site administrator, I can only assume they have gained the required permissions. If, as in this case, someone submits something that falls foul of copyrights held by others, it is not necessary to send C&D letters to our NOC. A simple e-mail to myself or another manager is all that is required. It is a little OTT getting site shutdown demands sent through when a simple e-mail or private message would be adequate - I am more than happy to remove any skin that infringes copyrights, and if necessary, discipline the user that submitted it.

    Anyway, the skin has been removed from our site.

    Ditto It's more creative to make your own skins anyway
