Let me try to clarify here : I totally agree that there is no issue
with copying the website design and style, it's indeed a recognition
that we did a good job on it :)

My only concern is that when the copy was done, you guys also copied
the Google Analytics javascript code snippet, and then, when people
access BlueSky website, it counts as if people were accessing Tuscany
website. If you check my patch, the only change I'm proposing is to
remove the scripts that is used to track website traffic.
