Logo Ripoff

It also looks like they ripped off six flags.

I am just kidding, but at first I did not see six flags there and I thought they did.

There are six flags, and they DID rip off the Six Flags' logo.

The entire bottom half with the writing is almost identical. It even uses some of the same words -- Championship, 2007 -- in the same places with similar fonts. The colors are the same, both "banner" shapes are the same -- yes, it's a blatant ripoff.

Sure, some generic logos copy ideas -- but this is like they just started with the BCS logo and commenced the Photoshopping. (or was it supposed to be vice versa?)

Okay, I agree.

I didn't see it in the smaller size, but you guys are right. Somebody took a vector image and adapted it.

Good catch.

Well, kind of. The first logo he posted of the Fiesta Bowl is drastically different than the second logo.

This has been a very silly exercise.

The question remains would anyone confuse the World Streetball Championship with the BCS Championship? Sure, the layout has been lifted. But no one is going to confuse the two. It's just artistic laziness.

Well, since I saw the streetball logo and immediately thought of the BCS mark, yes it is confusing. You are missing the whole point. For the amount of times that someone has lifted a fantasy logo someone on this board has designed (which probably no one outside the board has seen or ever will see anyway), I think it's interesting that certain people don't think it's a big deal. I have a feeling if this was a board members logo being stolen everyone would be a little more interested.

No, you're missing the point. I acknowledge that it is theft. However, the question as far as it being protected boils down to if a reasonable person would be confused between the two. No one within reason is going to confuse basketball and football. There is enough changed to distinguish the difference. Just because something is similar doesn't equate to identity theft. This is theft, just not as the level you're making it out to be.
