To my amazement a client is saying that a design I've done is a copy of one of theirs. It's actually impossible because the site they're referring to I have never seen before (until now). I know it's my word against theres, but still.
The sites are both corporate and in the same field, but that's where the similarity ends. I said they both use a green, albeit different ones, and have a grey background and some city shots but that's as far as it goes.
I have sent the design to 8 people who all agree there is no sign of plagerism whatsoever.
I stand by my design; I have been in the business for about 10 years and would never copy another design. She says if the owners of the site I'm supposed to have copied want to take it to court then it's me that'll go, not them.
I live in the UK; what's my position? Surely, they sub-contracted the work out to me so if the other company decided to take action, it would be against them, and not me. They would have to prove I copied it and take me to court I guess.
