Hi all,

I've got a question that is indirectly related to Microsoft Money 2004
onwards.

I have designed a software application for recipes that has an interface
similar to Money 2004+, in the following ways:

1. UI Layout is the same (ie, Menubar, toolbar, taskpad, main panel, help
pane, etc)
2. A tabbed toolbar like Money 2005 is also included
3. Color scheme for the menubar is similar to Money 2004
4. The task-based homepage is the same as in Money 2004, and uses the same
color scheme, style and layout. The html and css files of Money were used as
a starting/learning point.

I would also like to point out, that:
1. All controls (including menubar, toolbar, taskpad, etc) have been
developed from the ground up by myself
2. All icons in the program have been designed to be unique for the product.

So my question (actually 2) is:

1. Is everything legal and am I allowed to develop such a product?
2. Is there an email, contact form where I can contact MS about such issues?

Thanks,
Ivan

As an expert in Uyghur law I can state there is no problem with copyright whatsoever. If you are worried about other legal systems then contact a lawer for that legal system.

Yes I did. It doesn't look that I'm infringing any copyright issues.

You still need a lawyer. As a non legal non expert I think point 4 needs to be checked.
