Nick Bradbury has found a competitor who is using the data files from TopStyle and is passing them off as their own. Nick posts about how borrowing from others can be a benefit to all, but blatantly stealing is simply going too far. He has asked for your feedback on how to proceed.
Along these same lines, in a series of posts made yesterday in the news section of Stylegala (see Powerhouse Fraud & Fraud Web Designers), a web design company was brought to task for posting links to sites that were supposedly part of their portfolio but were in fact designs by other well known designers. The owner of the company has apparently fired the employee responsible and has apologized to the designers whose works were referenced. The effect of the public outpouring was not very favorable based on the site’s current home page.
