Some request to have their Web Property updated with a new look, while others want their site property duplicated with the exact look and feel of their current site. We call duplicating your website “Site Mirroring. “Although we would love to duplicate all designs, the truth of the matter is, sometimes we just can't, and here are some of the reasons why:
*Your current design is a template. Most template styles are copy written, so for us to copy templates that are not from GriotSites would cause us to violate a template owner's design, and we really don't want to do that. We can work with you to produce something similar which has always been the case for every Client who ran into this scenario.
*You are not the owner of your Web Property design, but your Web Designer is. If your property's copyright is held by someone else other than the Web Property owner, permission would have to be obtained from the site's owner to grant permission to Griotsites to duplicate the style.
