Once again, the evidence would suggest otherwise.

You are obviously in denial.
Until you learn the meaning of copyright infringement there is really no reason to continue the discussion.
I agree. antne, you have a few more stages to go, and a lot more to learn in this business.

A few of which are...

1. Don't try to fool people, this is not only a bad business practice, but it's self damning and self confining.

2. Don't try to fool people when they caught you already. That's like telling a cop who has you on video, with a clear shot of your face, robbing a store, "That's not me, I was framed."

3. When you rip something, don't assume no one has seen it before. It will always come back to bite you.

3. Learn from mistakes you have made, and build on that knowledge. No one is going to take you seriously until you do.

Listen man, when I was just starting in this industry, I'll be the first to tell you that I ripped from everyone. If you saw it somewhere in a magazine ad, chances are I turned it in for credit in college lol. At that time, I wasn't above yanking someone's work and putting my name on it. It was a pressure to fit in, it was a pressure to impress, it was a pressure to get a grade.

It didn't take my professors long to figure it out though, and I had to make up all of that work. I tried lying out of it too, with the same type of stories you have now, and they did, exactly what we did to you here....they presented the proof. The difference here is, once they presented the proof, I made no attempt to make excuses. I was busted, I knew I was busted, and it was time to be a man.

Ya know though, I'm glad they did what they did. It forced me to develop my own style. It forced me to think for myself, rather than taking the easy way out. It forced me to bust my rear to make up two semesters of work.

I can admit all of this now, because I know I'm a better person, a better media designer than I was then, and I'm far above and beyond those days and ethics I used then. In fact, we've fired employees about a year ago for this exact thing, and then needed to make amends to our clients for those employee's wrong deeds.

I've been there and done that man, so please.

like i said if i remember rightly that was a frames template or tutorial i downloaded ages ago..... if it was from ignition-media then so be it... does that mean that the whole design belongs to them .. no it doesnt because its mine... how many tutorials have you read with downloadable source files?

ANMMark i totally agree with what your saying and with the two sites in question like i said i admit i used the 2advanced sites to build mine but i did not steal the graphics and put my name on them i created them myself... but im not standing by and having everything ive done called a rip or a copy because that is simply not the case
