    my guess is since it's actually copyrighted your not going to get official permission, but on the other hand, it is different enough that it shouldn't be much of an issue.....

    someones going to do it, may as well be you.... very nice gesture asking permission, but I doubt you'll actually get it....., on the other hand I wouldn't expect much resistance either.... copying someone elses work is a compliment really.....

    I'm not sure how I feel about this...really. I appreciate you asking, instead of just doing it, but I honestly don't know how I feel about the idea of letting the skin go on RR. I'd ask for opinions here, but I know what I'll get back. GIVE IT AWAY, DUDE!

    besides the very bottom row of buttons i didnt even recongize it as onyx. There are a lot of changes (I like the skin though) which makes it unique. If i were you though i wouldnt want a look-a-like skin released to other front ends. this is your product's visual queue and makes it identifiable as cf. You have made it publicly shown to one or more people and therfore the layout/look is copyrighted.
    Since the look of the front end is what people use to identify the software it could bring you some customers that think RR is actually CF, but it could also deter them. for instance, RR isnt really meant for via epia boards. now say people were talking aobut it and someone made the comment that 'oh this program needs more power then the via line delivers'. people could mistakenly think that they are talking about CF and not purchase the software.

    wow..i ramble...is that clear though?

    oh yeh, real clear

    truth is, anything that your going to publish on the web is ripe for the picking.... a screenshot is all that's needed to copy a graphic, while there has to be some sort of feeling of being violated, it's also flattering that someone likes your design so much that they copied it....

    now if this guy went & used it as part of a commercial offering that's different... then let the lawsuits fly....
