Obvious replication? There's similarities in the design, but it's, at worst, derived.

I think you're jumping the gun here.
I shoot and ask questions later.

Take no offense of it.

Those are both very different to me...beyond size and shape. :)

I don't think there's much similarity either. Pretty much every design based on a mobile is going to have a lot of common elements. You could argue that the Viplayer design is a rip off of some Nokia designs. The Finale skin looks more like other Boxxi designs than anything else as far as I'm concerned :D

yikes... :shock: Now that's really not necessary...we all got the point w/o the personal references. :cry:

BTW I'm with you, I hate copied skins, I'm rabid about it...I just don't see it here.

Calm down guys :) It looks like it was inspired albeit a little too close in parts, so let's leave it at that, it certainly doesn't represent a rip. I would have thought a simple acknowledgement to vlda wouldn't have gone amiss though as it's evident it was inspired by it!
In a lot of ways it's a shame the skins from vlda never really made it into working skins! He has done some excellent work.
