    Layout Question

    I love this one sites layout its all html and cc sheets. I want to download the site and replace all of the text and images and colors with mine. Is this legal? I'm sure alot of designers do this to get the ball rolling on a design.

    Not really, what you could do is download the site, see how they did it and learn from it. The way to get the ball rolling is NOT to copy someone elses ideas but to get inspiration from them.

    I would not call it stealing since your just using the layout. The way people design is to get ideas from other peoples work. I figure if im using a html blueprint to start my project then to me thats what it is a blueprint. Now if i was taking a logo and there text and stamping my name on it yeah i would consider that wrong.
