      Except this work is not stolen. It's similar/inspired by.

        There is definitely a grey area between inspired and a copy. To me this is more of a copy with little changed. This could even be a Slack theme.

      As far as I know they didn't steal Slack's source code, only used a similar design for a specific vertical. That's totally fine, what Slack is doing is working, it doesn't really matter to me if a design is 'original' or not. As long as the user/s are happy.
