unless the border&banner were one piece and were buried in some clip art book then it definetly came from chantry. it would have been wise for ryan to find a different banner. it wouldn't have affected the layout and i doubt we'd be having this discussion. on several occassions i've used posters from here as a 'springboard' for ideas but am very concious to not use them as an absolute 'blueprint'.
damn! if only ryan had just used the 'concept' of art's layout and used a different border and banner. that's what i would have done.
as for 'intellectual property'.....i'm only renting a small one bedroom flat.
chloe* the thing for me is i don't see this as a straight ripp-off. sure it's art's border and banner ( that i assume art 'found' and put together ) but the kid, devil head and hand all appear to be seperate elements. so ryan took 4 'old' images and created something new. them's my thoughts.
