Interesting. The design looks exactly like our software at https://useproof.com and when I take a look at the code it seems to be a direct copy. They just appended 'ret' to all our variable names. You can see 'proof' variables still littered throughout the codebase. :( real bummer.

@jpamorgan show us ..... proof. 😬 sorry I had to

@jpamorgan @swetzequity Also looks like they swooped the "logo" from this blog post unless the writer here also worked on this https://blog.prototypr.io/facebo... Also, it looks like John was talking about the notification thing in the bottom left on both sites. They're shockingly similar.

@jpamorgan that's exactly what I thought. I wish I jumped in here sooner and said something.

@jpamorgan It's common that every developer name contact related fields like `fname`, `firstname` or `first_name`. This doesn't mean it was copied from another developer. So does the Javascript code that every site gives to embed in others sites. They look similar. But that doesn't mean they are copied. As a CTO, you should have known better before mAking such tall claims
Gavin@gavindinubilo · I write code, also Jam API, and Songfari
@jpamorgan @raajesh_rp Unfortunately, this isn't the case here though, the design (along with class names of elements) for the notifications are literally the same besides some small copy in it. I'm all for competition, but quite literally copying your competitor isn't right.
Rajesh Pandurangan@raajesh_rp · Tech Enthusiast
@gavindinubilo Maybe the design resembles, but the claims are like their entire application been copied. When your product is so strong, why bother at all? There are various such notifications templates available if you google them. One such UI also can be found here https://tympanus.net/Development...

@jpamorgan @swetzequity I'll just leave this here... http://d.pr/i/RUQEvp (when they copied our code they forgot to take our own customer names out... Yes, this was actually taken off their website... And yes, Austin Witte is actually a Proof customer lol)

@jpamorgan @swetzequity @dave_rogenmoser There is no end to what level you guys will stoop. We are more than happy that your customer is now moving out to Notif. :-) here is the proof where Austine has signed up with Notif.. This is not something I would have shared in normal circumstances. My apologies to Austine Witte. You took the right decision. https://yadi.sk/i/Ujq14Im-3KrZyr
@palash76 Austine Witte aside, it's plain to see that you did copy their code and blog post. This could have been settled simply by admitting that you did copy them for whatever reason. You could have retained some level of respect in the community here.

@jpamorgan @swetzequity @gavindinubilo @palash76 I am really curious to see the response to them using the image straight from Prototypr - http://d.pr/i/ZR6MO/3BEs3ONw

WTF? You guys seemed to have copied the look and feel of Proof.

lol. Fomo was the first company to provide this service. we launched in 2014 as Notify, then rebranded to Fomo in August 2016. proof: * https://web.archive.org/web/2015... * https://www.producthunt.com/post... most competitors (including those commenting here) have copy-pasted elements of our product (code) and website (copywriting). most competitors have been sent legal warnings from our lawyers for the above offenses. when i ponder "who will win" i'm reminded of Fomo's vision statement: "to give honest entrepreneurs the credibility they deserve." proof: * https://blog.usefomo.com/having-... because this space is contingent on honesty, whenever our competitors cut ethical corners it only make Fomo shine more. thanks @andrewwarner and Parneet Dilawari for the heads up.

This is just a blatant ripoff, and the makers are just being obnoxious. That's very sad to see, and not worth of the PH community.

@jpvalery you guys ripped off usefomo. Could not be creative enough to even use a unique domain. Copied them and created useproof..haha..thanks for entertaining the community..you should get a special mention in PH.
Jp Valery@jpvalery · Community @ RobotShop / Ex-Gameloft
@palash76 I'm not affiliated with any of these companies. I'm just sad to see your agressive behavior and lack of diplomacy, especially in light of what seems to be you just copying everything from another company. Rather than trying to calm things down, you just taunt and insult other users. So ultimately rather than explaining why your product is superior or more innovative, you just act obnoxious. Not the best course of action IMHO 🤦‍♂️

@jpvalery surprisingly you find only my comments obnoxious! Is that your neutral stand? And what makes you believe that Notif is a copy of proof? Just because couple of proof founders and sympathizers are being called in to make that claim? Did you do your diligence before commenting or taking a side? If you did, then let the world know what you found. When you have already jumped into the water, don't retract and pretend to be neutral. Ask proof first how can they copy usefomo before you ask Notif. And notif is just 10% of the marketing automation suite from Retainly. Do you really think there is any competition? You choose to be blind towards the obvious blaming strategy of proof and even pass a judgement that we are not fit for this community. We're you expecting kind words from me? Don't be naive.

@jpvalery where is your diplomacy in declaring that we are not worth of this community?.who made you the judge? practice what you preach..and stop making a fool of yourself. You want a war? I will give you one you have never dreamed of.

Thank you @ria for hunting Notif. Notif is a small script that can be pasted on any website. It tracks signups, purchases or even subscriptions and displays them in real-time to the website visitors, compelling them to signup up as well. It works wonders. We are ourselves witnessing 100% growth in our website conversions since we first launched it last week.

Hey @palash76 where did you get the design for your exciting new tool? Looks shockingly similar to our software https://useproof.com that we launched 6 months ago... :)

@dave_rogenmoser Hi Dave, we have multiple designs for the notification. The one displayed is a standard UI design component. :-)
John Philip MorganHiring@jpamorgan · CTO at Proof
@dave_rogenmoser @palash76 It's our EXACT design AND code. You even left our variable names in tact in the code.
John Philip MorganHiring@jpamorgan · CTO at Proof
@dave_rogenmoser @palash76 It's pretty shocking to see people completely rip code like this and call it their own.
✎ Andrew Warner@andrewwarner
@ria Your reputation could be hurt by posting an exact copy of someone else's work. @palash76 hasn't addressed the issue and I'll stand down if I'm wrong, but he copied the exact design. Tim, please talk with @palash76. There are better ways to work.
Zach Swetz@swetzequity · BuiltinPitt.com
@jpamorgan it's really messed up.. but if there's one positive to come from all this, I (and hopefully many others) interested in this space learned about Proof today. I look forward to using it on sites 🍻

How could your server side scripts be copied? is your security at risk?
