    Looking like another site?

    Subconsciencely I have designed a portion of my site to look a lot like flickr.com's header; it wasn't on purpose. The colors are different, but I still have the whole dotted line / dropdown thing going on. Can I run into any trouble with this if my site were to become sucsessful?

    It seems fairly generic, really. Look at how many sites have copied the Amazon / PayPal "tabs-at-the-top-and-a-bar-across" kind of header... I would try to make it as different as possible, though, just to avoid trouble. Sometimes there's a fine line between inspiration and theft. (There was an SP article about that a while back... Too lazy to look it up right now, though...)
