    Hello All,

    I have a ? that I think is interesting. I am thinking of making a site that is similar to someone's old site. For example, the site in question now has a completely new design and content from 2 years ago. I want to mimick their old site. Is this legal? Of course I am planning to change the content up but it will be similar. Thanks for the feedback in advance.:)
