Davidson ripped off?

You can see where they changed the portions of the logo to say "hey, it's the same pose, but a different logo..."

The problem? The nose. They didn't touch the nose, and that is exactly the same. From the nose, you can deconstruct the rest of the sham that is this logo.

Also, go Omaha Lancers!

I happen to know that Fraser is incommunicado this week (he and I are working on another project and stay in touch). I took the liberty however of sending the following e-mail to the team's "Chairman:"

I'm writing to advise you that your club's new logo identity is almost certainly in violation of a copyright held by a fellow named Fraser Davidson, for a design he created some time ago. An example of the work he created can be found at this URL:

I would strongly recommend that you contact him immediately regarding this matter, so that upon discovery of your team's infringement on his design he doesn't pursue legal action. While I have no connection with Mr. Davidson nor interest, financial or otherwise, in this matter, I do have contact information for him in the form of an e-mail address, at "fraser@fraserdavidson.co.uk."

In closing, I'd like to say that the modifications to his design, by whomever did them, suit the club well, and I hope that you can work out suitable arrangements whereby you can actually use them.

Stay tuned...

It has a similar nose and mouth? big deal.

yawn

Are you kidding me? It looks like somebody took some tracing paper and Davidson's logo, and changed a couple of things to suit the team name. I don't know why, but for some reason, people around here don't especially like having their artwork stolen. :rolleyes:

Wow. Just saw this only the local news and thought something looked a little weird about it! Definitely a rip off. But I do have to admit, if they can find a way to work this out with davidson, this is a very good identity for them.
