There’s a new WordPress theme today, it seems to be already quite popular already, however the design has been completely copied from an existing website.

Is it even legal that just look at any site and copy all the design (or well 99.9 %) ? Isn’t it an unethical practice especially if done by an ‘Elite’ author?

There are some information you should asked to the website owner first. Are you using this theme? And send the item link, or is this site developed by this author?

If you are pretty sure that it’s illegal theme copy then report it dude!

Cheers!

I’ve seen items deleted just for having similar headers. Interested to see what will be done about this one. The author is being accused of copying this design: http://jackietrananh.com

He has said that the he used that design as inspiration and I wouldn’t say it’s a 99% copy.
