              Actually that was me in a support ticket. As far as I know there is no way to copyright the overall look if a site. Otherwise we would have gone after WBB a long time ago. My answer was that as long as they are not using vB images, I didn't see any problem with it.

              Perhaps this is something we can ask Ashley to verify with our lawyers. I'll assign him the ticket. Until you hear an official word from Ashley, I would not recommend using this style.

                  Ashley ( a guy ) I'm sure ashley will get back to you as soon as he can.

                  However, i know that most other forum softwares, do not allow their defautly images to be used with other forum typed softwares.

                    This isn't about the images. From what I cna tell that style does not use our images. It only mimic our basic look.

                    I have assigned your ticket to Ashlrey. I cannot guarantee a time when he will see it and respond. If he needs to contact the lawyers this could take days or weeks.

                        I'm sorry to bump up a seriously old topic, but has anything happened regarding this subject?

                        It has been twenty days today since the topic was started.

                          I wouldn't say that, one of these looks like it was cut out of the other:

                            Little copycats that can't pay for vBulletin is what they are. Just like the people who made the vB2 copycat skin for IPB.

                              This isn't allowed

                              I'd say this isn't allowed. Because you take an image and cut it in half doesn't mean it isn't the same image.
