Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

29th July 2010 @ 3:50pm

Imitation is the sincerest form of flatteryIt's great when we get compliments about our site and we're flattered that this happens frequently. After all, it's nice to know that what we do is appreciated. However, ever since we launched the latest Formoda site, some people have been taking their appreciation a bit too far...

In the past 12 months, we have become aware of at least five "so-called" design agencies who have literally lifted our design and just inserted their own content. The cheek of it!

Yes, okay, maybe we should be flattered but, while we appreciate the compliment, we don't really appreciate other "agencies" stealing the designs which came at the end of lots of hard work and many years of experience.

At the moment, we are aware of rip-off websites in Brazil, Russia, Australia, the US and here in the UK. No doubt there's more we haven't noticed.

So far, everyone we have contacted has taken down or changed the offending website but we hope that this annoying (yet oddly flattering) trend stops soon!

If you spot one we've missed, we'd love to hear about it! No reward offered.
