    Host Xl rips layouts.

    Hey all. Ive discovered a hosting company that has nothing better to do then rip layouts. Look at his hositng site: http://www.hostxl.net and now look at the one she ripped form:
    http://www.dgsaiyans.net/hostxltempl...dex_flash.html
    http://www.dgsaiyans.net/hostxltempl...dex_flash.html
    . Those are templates that someone must of put up on kazaa or something and he decided he get them illegaly. When i confronted on msn he admitted downloading them. Anyways it ashames me people would do things like this.

    Looks like a template to me, and does say "hostxl" in the other URL's. From the info you provided above I don't see how he ripped?

    lol
    I payed for the templetes, I got them for 25$ and I did do edits to it, and the reason this guy is on my case is because he wanted free reseller from me, intil he could make enogh money to buy his own server.

    LOL

    I'm not seeing how there is a rip...

    He may of wanted a nullified version, but that is fairly unrelated. I still fail to see how it's a rip.

    Well, dunno about the template, but that stuff written on their frontpage is that same as http://www.allin1web.net

    Either way, their offers are way too cheap to be true to me. Overselling?

    If you did pay for those templates, it wouldn't have been so hard to of just said so on our msn convo. And if you did pay for them can you mention of who you got them from? Also 4 degrees i own dgsaiyans.net (it is setup to my reseller) on our msn convo he mentioned he did download them from kazaa, im ashamed to admit it but, yes i do have kazaa so i went and found them and downloaded the orginal ones and uploaded them. So that is why it says hostxl in those url becuase i named the folders hostxltemplaterip & hostxltemplaterip2 .

    Ok, but still if they're up for download shouldn't you find the people who uploaded them and not blame this person who obviously was 'given' them for free?

    Hostxl, you may want to remove the template ...

    Yea, i agree and ive tried contacting the people and have had no luck. I as a designer though i know how it feels when people rip or steal my work so i was just doing what i know i would want done.

    Yes, but I also doubt it was copyrighted, so infact at the end of the day, it is just "wrong" and besides naming and shaming nothing can be done about it.

    Stolen, paid for or accepted for free, doesn't really matter. It just looks like another cheap template on another thrown together website with bad grammar, incorrect spelling and rediculous prices, i wouldn't worry about it too much, it probally wont even be there in a few weeks.
