AdSense Templates and Joel Comm

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I have just purchased AdSense Templates from Joel Comm. Are his
templates compliant with Google AdSense requirements?  If I use any of
his templates, and/or e-zine subject matter to build my site, do I run
the risk of getting black-balled by Google?

Is there a way to use templates, e-zine material produced by others and
still make your site unique?  My goal is not to duplicate another
person's web-site, create middleman web-sites or to plagerize (sp)
another's work.  I have my own ideas for subject and graphic content,
but would like to use resources that will enable me not to have to
"re-invent" the wheel.

Any ideas for a newbie?
