LogoMaid and its SimpleBits Logo Ripoff

[ Disclaimer: I don't plan on making this a rant blog -- I promise I am keeping lots of fun stuff in store! ]

As peeved as I am about people ripping off the MacRabbit design, LogoMaid takes it to a whole new level with Dan Cederholm’s (excellent) new SimpleBits logo. Not only did they sell it as their own, but they actually threatened to sue Dan for stealing their logo. Hahaha, the nerve — excuse me while I go take a breath.

Head over to Daring Fireball for more info, and spread the anti-ripoff love!

Hahaha, crazy men

Yeah, this has definitely turned into quite the s**t storm for LogoMaid. Had they simply removed the logo from their site, they wouldn’t have become the laughing stock of the ‘net… like they are right this moment.

Dan’s logo rocks … sad to see two bit, uncreative scam artists working companies over.

Hmm, I don’t think Dan owns the curly bracket frame. I saw *exactly* the same thing in the past on the net.

Peter, the LogoMaid logo uses an extremely similar perspective and just general “feeling”. I agree that the curly braces alone are not defining. The rounded cube structure inside definitely is though.
