      Wow. Even more damning.

      I can't believe Joyent would do that!

      (is this joke getting old yet?)

      We've got to get more of that classy dropshadow on the Falkner Winery site. I think it would really set it off when paired with that speed bump in the middle of the page. ;-p

      Not at all alike... :-)

      Hey, now they have something to add to their list of 7 Reasons Not To Hire Us.

      Plagurism sucks. In any form.
      Third and Grand should be throughly ashamed of themselves. But somehow, I don't think they are.

      Wow. I wrote a note to Falkner Winery letting them know it's disappointing they haven't made a move to correct this blatant act of stealing another company's ideas.

      So whats their response to that ?

    11. welborn 92 months ago | reply

      Actually, it looks different enough to be coincidence to me. And even if it is similar, it's not like those colors or that proportion haven't been used before.

      Has anyone compared the CSS code to see if they are the same? If they're not, why not give Faulkner the benefit of the doubt?

      @ welborn,
      ... because inspiration is not using an image blindly or even worse taking 2 sites and making one bad one. This is like a car company stealing 2 other cars to make a "new" one.... simply put it is sad.

      Maybe the Faulkner Winery site is a parody of the Joyent site. It'd be okay then, right?

    14. DanBenjamin 92 months ago | reply

      @sean_mcgee, if it were a parody, they wouldn't be trying to profit from it, and wouldn't deny it.

      people getting upset because of copying of elements that aren't and can't be protected by copyright, patent or trademark laws?

      silly waste of time.

      you can't protect your ideas folks, not like you seem to think you can.

      now everyone that is using white backgrounds on their letterhead pay me some royalties, that was my idea.

      >>>Has anyone compared the CSS code to see if they are the same? If they're not, why not give Faulkner the benefit of the doubt?

      Yes that was one of the first things I did when I heard about this . The source code seems different enough to support claims that Falkner's site was coded and written without cut-and-paste from the Joyent site.

      Has anyone else noticed how third&grand's website sucks? Try increasing the font size through your browser for one. Anyways, someone should send them a DoS attack. It's not cool to steal someone else's work, pass it off as your own, and get paid for minor tweaks.

      @rdoeksen

      An idea, in my humble opinion, would be like comparing Friendster to Myspace to Facebook. There's no harm done or copyright infringement for an "idea". But, what if one or two of the aforementioned sites copied the exact design, layout, and artwork of one or more of their competitors' sites or any other site for that matter? That would definitely constitute theft. It doesn't matter so much that div names, classes, or ids were changed, that doesn't constitute original work. Your point about multiple people using a white background for a letterhead is very generalized and not related what so ever to what 3rd&grand has done.

      Yes I noticed that, on the 7 reasons not to hire us no. 4 and 7 are h1 headers, which is why they look odd, I am sure thats not intentional.
