Take a closer look guys, maybe the colours are similar but thats as far as it goes. www.2tradeit.co.nz are not rip offs like tm

We dont think they are a rip off copy. The scripts are very different nut they colors are similar. This doesnt make it a copy thou. Personally we use another few sites like http://www.swapshop.co.nz as they are free and dont restrict like most other sites. Auction sites are good if you have the time but classifieds sites your ads run longer and generally need less work. We say good on 2tradeit

I think the logo does give it a trademe flavor which is certainly pushing the boundaries. The general format though, is your basic auction format used by ebay, trademe and others so it would be difficult for Trademe to challenge in that respect. Sites like Trade to Save www.tradetosave.co.nz have a new trading concept so its easier to protect the copy write.
