It’s an ongoing trend now, especially for new authors. I had to contact two of them thus far about my designs and layer style. Contact support and see what they’ll do about it though, and this post will be locked and removed shortly.

I don’t think “he” copied any of your designs, they look different to me. Nobody can claim that they own a certain color or “color scheme” or even the basic elements that a regular would normally contain. It’s like saying NO ONE can place a certain bit of text on the right of the page because you were the first one who did it and so on. I think it’s a bit harsh to have said that he copied your design, coz by the looks of things he didn’t. There are scores of flyers by different authors who have adopted the same style of layout but 90% are unique in their own way.

But, Yes, you do get a few who want easy money and just rip/copy someone’s design and change a few elements and claim the design as their own. In this case your design has not been copied.

Thanks everybody for your suggections.

Im not saying that anybody own any color scheme or structure. Here is the check list if you see closely.

All the icons are same. wording is exactly as same. Header and footer are same. Number style is the same. placement of address and caption 100% same. Invoice due section is 100% same.

The only thing he changed is color scheme where I dont have any objection.

now what do yoi think?

Thanks

yes it’s true some elements have been copied completely… but i don’t know if he can be accused for it since it’s just text that will be changed by everyone who use it..

they are quite standard text so… but i do understand you how you feel is always bad that someone do like this

Some text elements are similar other than that the design has been made from a different approach. If you strongly think that the elements that are there are hand written you may want to contact support right away and let them decide.
