There is a difference between "looking like" something and actually using their items.
You can copyright code and images that you produce ... and that can not be copied.
If you look at something and design something similar without reusing any of their items, that is a different story.
So, the question is, did he use their code or images?
If he is using their code, and if it is not open source, then it does not matter if it looks the same or not. If he is not using their code or images, then it can look similar.
Wow, talk about a perfectly HIJACKED thread. Well played, MBatt.
Does anyone have an answer for the OP? I'd like to know, myself. I don't give a FF about HTC's copyright issues.
Interesting, there are two versions on the Market...v1.0 and v1.2 (ad supported). Looks like the reviewers don't like the ad version at all...
thanks for steering this thread back on topic Erich. Got a lil off topic.
I've just stuck with the stock gallery app.
Martin, my pleasure :)
I tried the older version. It is just a tad better than the stock app, for the swipe browsing. Other than that, it's the same. I was hoping to find an app that allows me to move pics around folders and better organize pics, without having to use Astro or Linda file managers. Linda is a bit easier because it uses thumbnails of the pics, so you can see what the pic is, where Astro is just a generic icon.
Ah, kool.....thanks! I had to go back and forth with that in order to get it to refresh and make the thumbnails...but it's all good now.
