doubt it.... It's not as sharp and/or polished. You would think they would make a new design effort too.

Looking at this site more closely, they do steal a lot of elements from the site. However, from a legal prospective, there is no law that says you can't build a site that is similar to someone elses. I do agree though that taking images like the ones on your homepage is unethical and unjust.

Good luck.
