Losers!

I work for 4 Guys Interactive. We're a kick-ass web development company that does great work and I'm very happy to work there. We have a great website, but there is a problem with having an awesome website - people steal it!

One of our employees was doing a search today for our boss's name and came across a company called Atlantis Designs. The reason our boss's name came up on their website is that they stole our design and even some of our content (that's how Dave's name got pulled up through a search).

Now we've had lots of companies steal our design in the past, but this is the most blatant one we've ever seen. What a bunch of losers. They're a web design company, but they can't even make up their own design for their site.

4 Guys Interactive versus Atlantis Designs

See any similarities?

I have no idea what you are talking about. Their site is completely different than yours. After all, it's blue! *G*

Imitation is the highest form of flattery? *chuckle* that is pretty bad.

Oh my! Did you see their "client list"? Most of the clients are their previous designs of their own site, 'cept two, one without an image, and a second hosted on virtualave. LOLOL!
That's pretty bad, and I bet your bosses kick their butts! :)

Ya, sounds like legal action time to me. How absolutely ridiculous and blatantly STUPID. What were they thinking? Can they think? Obviously not if they need to steal so openly and obviously like that. Oi, some people... sometimes "wonderous variety" (as in different types of people that God put on earth, part of a quote from Kevin Costner Robinhood)means: lots of stupid people to weed out. Ha ha ha.. Oh, uh, that was rude, oops...lol.

Yep - Start making screen captures b/c I think you guys might have a good legal case. This is so pathetic and ridiculous. I wonder how long they've been able to get away with it!?

I actually took screen shots of the front page of both sites...lemme know if you want them, Kymberlie, and they are yours!

Friggin' pathetic, this whole thing is! LOSERS is not a strong enough word for these idiots!

i wonder if they steal other designs for their clients, too? hey, there's an idear... you could email their clients and tell 'em what's up... would that be legal?

and they not only steal the design, but content too? allowing the originator to find the copier? gawd, how stupid and lazy can you get?!?

I'd be happy to send a cease and desist letter for you
