Clearbolt.. gots owned

Posted 19 May 2002 - 08:28 PM

Clearbolt, a well known website for the art of Russ. One of those websites we all know about.. got caught ripping.

The popular design at Clearbolt was actually a simple rip of an ORIGINAL website here.

Somthing hard to believe.. yet true

Yea it was pretty weird, I saw this a while back, definitly highly inspired, and I like the original with the blue better.

I wouldn't go so far as to call it a rip because they definitly took some liberties in modifing the design. I would call it unorigonal and stale. The origonal is much nicer looking as well... Thanks for the post, it seems that clearview isn't worth visiting anymore (not that I have ever been there).

Cheers Sam

ok..
you cant really RIP a website the way you can with a PICTURE.. because a website will always have different content etc.

However,  He used the same style of buttons, and layout.. and font.. blah..  


And, Marko, I agree with your statement, usually you do not know who copied who. But, for this case the guy over at the orig site had the style up long before him.

not to mention, over at theroot42.org, clearbolt dosnt deny this.

Unless you rip the content as well. And that is pathetic. :)

also, both of those sites are unimpressive. it's like arguing over who had the fire-engine red Geo Metro first. :none: they're both mediocre sites.
