    Legal Question/An idea

    So i saw a few screens of the upcoming cf3 release and I know there are quite a few diehard cf fans that think nothing even comes close to the looks of that. So I was thinking......I bet we could do a cf3 clone skin and have it ready before cf3 is even released.

    The question is - is that all legal as long as all of the artwork is our own (and we dont use their name or logos)?

    as an artist i think it is wrong of you to suggest it ! stop trying to copy other people's work. be creative and make something of your own !

    we are making our own. i have been developing the "stock theme" for OpenMobile for a few months now. It is totally original, our own. I am also designing two other themes for OpenMobile, not commissioned by the coder. Justchat_1's idea is not to copy them because we are dumb and dont know what to do for our own skin, it is more that people really like CF, and to combine a look and feel that people are familiar with the fast OpenMobile software, it only makes sense.

    As an artist, I say it is okay to recognize others good work, and want to present that work to others, in another form. Am I not supposed to paint my truck black because someone else has already done that and I would be copying them and not being creative enough to come up with my own color? Please!

    I agree, Im not too keen on the look CF3.0 has but there are features that I am now gonna implement that was a cool idea... like the volume control rather than 3 buttons they have 1.. thats slick! Other than that I feel Riderunner has more features already than CF3 will..

    sergatiuk:
    The goal was not a direct copy just a centrafuse themed skin-more a our interpretation of a cf skin...something to show cf users they can have the great graphics there used to on a front end that performs well too (no 20+sec load times) or $$$ spent.
