          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....

                          here is a good article on copyright myths:
                          http://www.templetons.com/brad/copymyths.html

                          the catch is if he had changed it enough to not be considered copyright infringment.

                          here is what copyright's definition is:
                          Copyright, a form of intellectual property law, protects original works of authorship including literary, dramatic, musical, and artistic works, such as poetry, novels, movies, songs, computer software, and architecture. Copyright does not protect facts, ideas, systems, or methods of operation, although it may protect the way these things are expressed. See Circular 1, Copyright Basics, section

                          edit: of course i'm no lawyer so i could be wrong. but from what i remember in college (we had to take a media law class) it is copyrighted

                            surely, ebomb and veetid have little less weight in room of court than these giants...

                            but u r missing something here, citing law of states wont do much, as long he is on norways soil... Did it much good for hollywood giants to battle about deCSS in norway? And my guess is their stakes were bit higher too

                              i agree, it's not a matter of 'if' or 'can' they do something, just stating that you can copyright looks. I kind of got off subject replying to your comment. I doubt they will take it to that extent in order to keep a positive company image, and marazi asked so that was the right thing to do too. I guess ultimately it's up to marazi when he get the 'yay or nay' whether he'll release it or not.
