    I think this went too far, and too bitter. It reminds me of the Christian Louboutin case where he actually managed to trademark the color "Red" for his red soles. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/05/christian-louboutin-ysl-red-soles_n_1857992.html

    You can DMCA for anything you want, but it doesn't mean you have a claim – and to be quite honest, the layout is not unique. The internet is not an island – and there will be better/worse versions of your design at the end of the day.

    I'll finish this with a quote,

    "Imitation is the best form of flattery"
