Logo Rip Offs

Today I was browsing through different blogs and I came upon the much talked about LogoMaid ripoff scandal. LogoMaid is a company that deals in “off the shelf” logo’s. They make (or buy logo’s) and then resell them. Unsurprisingly, their work is not very original or good, and in some cases, is a flat-out rip-off.

One has to wonder how long it is before someone get’s sued. I had a browse through LogoMaid’s “Unique Logos” section and found these gems of design:

I wonder of this designer has ever heard of which looks a lot like

Then there are these two the first one belongs to simplebits.com and the other to LogoMaid. Anyone see something dodgey?

These guys really must like Xbox : /

wait, that looks familiar?

I wonder what they were thinking? I found these pretty quickly and there were some more that I could have added but decided they were borderline…

Apperently they also ripped apple, but that got taken off the site soon after it was made public: http://flickr.com/photos/singletrack/429895395/

Where is the world going to when you think you are going to get away with stuff like that.

Pwnd. 🙂

  1. The funny thing is that the longer you browse the logomaid website, the more stolen stuff you’re going to find. Logomaid steals logos, plain and simple.

  2. Yeah, the only reason I didn’t get more was because I was strapped for time. But they have tons of ripped stuff up.

    Disgusting.
