    hi, i like to know that if i copied the whole website like alternate-energy-sources.com (with the space in between also). would i get in trouble with the law. or something like that.

    what would the owner do of that website if he see another website that has the same content?

    can he do something about it?

    just a thought.:)

    I was told that you can copy the general layout (template) of the site, but not the images or content.

    I may be wrong, though, because I am not a lawyer.

    that's horrible advice, just because someone else is doing it doesn't make it legal.

    Oh lots of people kill other people, Go right ahead!!!

    Just because someone else is doing it doesn't mean the original owner of the content can't sue every single one of them. It was be more cost effective that way anyways.

    To be completely honest, after looking at the site I'd recommend just heading over to Themeforest if your not a web designer.

    Otherwise, here's the copy of the site:
