Warning to Magento Users!

We have all heard of website copy being stolen or re-arranged  but this is the most blatant, worst-case copy job I've seen a long, long time... It seems as though the crew over at HelloThemes (no, I'm not giving them a link) has no problem stealing content and passing it off as their own. This is pretty irritating...

The picture below shows you a screen shot sample of just one page (they copied the whole site!) that was completely copied and presented as their own.

See below...


Although copy/paste happens all the time, even though it's illegal, this is one of the worst I've seen. I just had to post an article and give a BIG THUMBS DOWN to HelloCopy - I mean, HelloTheme. What a bunch of morons.

To the folks at HelloThemes

"You do know that this will go all over the social web...You and anyone associated with your company will be banned from working with any reputable firm for life, don't you?"

- That's all I have to say, let's keep it PG shall we :) - You can learn more and get the full story over at the awesome MGNTO Theme company blog. It's one to check out, I highly recommend it!
