Now that I've been using ipernity for a few days, I'm struck by how similar much of the look, feel, tools and navigation are to Flickr's. For example, ipernity's Doc Manager and Flickr's Organizer are practically the same. The underlying code is clearly based on Flickr's. This has left me very curious about a possible business relationship between ipernity and Flickr. Given that I and others are counting on ipernity's being more open than Flickr to sharing vintage photographs, this resemblance gives me pause.
Anyone else have any thoughts and/or concerns about this.
