you ladies really need to chill. you realize this is the internet and everything will get copied and duplicated. A lot of people come to colourlovers to pick palettes for their visual identity projects and even home decor. I, myself have received numerous links from my clients for palettes from the web to use in their branding projects. I had my palettes set to 'allow commercial use' in my previous account because people will use these palettes anyway. If you don't want something to be copied, don't post it on the internet and really, what's the worse that can happen if a palette is copied. I don't get it.

How about when you are being wrongly accused?

"Directly copying another designer’s color scheme might be considered lazy. In some cases, it can even be considered copyright infringement. A recent case involving Seven Towns, the makers of Rubik’s Cube, versus Dayan, demonstrates that while color schemes themselves can’t be copyrighted, the order and placement of colors can be. It’s why Dayan replaced its orange with purple."

Most of the examples shown so far show colors in a different order than the original palette. While the original palette could be protected, and the creator might have a claim of infringement if it were copied exactly, once the colors are rearranged it is considered a different palette. There is no violation, at least legally. Sadly this is true no matter how obvious the similarities.

Hello,
A while back you accused me of copying a palette. Well I have answered you accusation. I'm here to wish you find lots of love and inspiration in your life. I have lots of both and have no need to copy anyone's work, or worse, to go around the internet accussing others without any evidence. Try using your time to study and search for reference, that's what has allowed me to make great design, which has payed all my bills for the last 15 years.

I guess she was writing about this post of mine:
