Your website isn’t going anywhere until you get the cloning stamp of approval. We’ve seen it happen time and time again, but I continue to be struck by how utterly unoriginal cloners are when it comes to design or branding. Behold the German, Russian and Chinese carbon copies of Pinterest, the red hot startup that just raised $27 million for its ‘self-expression engine’. Can you spot the differences between Pinterest, Pinspire.de (from master cloners the Samwer brothers), Fast Lane Ventures-backed Pinme.ru and China’s Markpic?
