Here are other logos using the same exact diamond shape:

This is an example of what I call "cheesy". It's not really copying, but it *looks* like it is. It's legal, and all that, but... well... it's cheesy.

When one of my logos comes out cheesy, I take it as a sign that I need to work on the idea some more. It can be hard to let go of something, especially if you thought it was a really good, original idea, but sometimes it's better for business.

Avalikmom's picture

Well, of course I could make an abstract diamond, I wanted something close to realistic. Anyway, I've made a lot of adjustments (adding more faceting). Hopefully it will be sufficient. Even if you look at everything you posted with a side view (not tilted), the basic concept is the same.

Still, I don't think it should have required changing, based simply on the fact of what it is.

I know what you mean Darla. Adding more facets just makes it look wrong.

Ivan told me that it will not remove the logo. Thus it is opening a dangerous precedent for other similar cases.

admin's picture

No, we don't work by precedents, because it's impossible to compare the cases. This is grey area. I wish it wasn't up, but I leave it up to the designer. It's not damaging to us I think.

Neko-chan's picture

These two seem to use the same idea, but they don't look exactly alike. Though I'd say that the yellow one definitely looks more 'liony'.

grego66's picture

I haven't a problem with this one really. It's just if Ninil wants the animal shelter one removed then this design of his should be removed on similar grounds.

Ninil's picture

Hi Grego66,
I'll remove the logo. It is clear that the idea has already been used by another designer. I'm not having luck with the cats. Is already the second logo that happens this. The other was the "Feline Club".

grego66's picture

Hi Ninil,
You should have left it, like already has been said similar concepts are used, it's going to happen, but then that means at the same time work like the Animal Shelter and Splash Fish and probably a ton of others has to remain. I'm for the latter, I only think traces and direct copies should be removed. That's also probably the easiest way to govern it.

AKMulligan's picture

That was rotten luck! I had liked how you repurposed it.

Ninil's picture

I removed the logo, because Ivan will certainly do that. He informed me that the work site, must be original.

with slogan " you are number one".

I'm sorry Coconuts, I have not seen your concept.

Max respect!!!!

inGenious's picture

in the same brief:
1)my logo:
http://stocklogos.com/logo/10-west-dental-2

and...
http://stocklogos.com/logo/10-west-dental-16

The brief does not refer to any clock, is a brief that wants a logo for a dental office that contains the number 10 in name.

Darla Hallmark's picture

That's just two different people trying to represent the number 10 in a clever way. There's nothing unusual about similar concepts showing up in briefs. I notice the second one also includes a compass pointing west.

inGenious, none of us are quite as clever and original as we like to think we are. If we start thinking that we are soooo creative that nobody could possibly think of the things we think of, we stop advancing. It's not good to get all tangled up in worrying about what other people are doing. Your *design* looks better than theirs, and that's the important thing.

inGenious's picture

If he used toothbrushes symbol it was something normal.
but I come with an idea and another "designer"comes and steals think it's plagiarism.
But I starting to understand that it works on the site ...

XBlueDivision's picture

plagiarism is an exact copy!
Using a similar concept is legitimate!
(It should be different from the creative presentation - This is given !)

Darla Hallmark's picture

Here's another good link.
http://www.mikeindustries.com/blog/archive/2005/09/logo-originality

Avalikmom's picture

The logos look very different. I don't think using a clock to symbolize the number 10 is an original idea. eMindz clock is also a compass. If both logos represented a clock and a compass at the same time, then it would be pretty iffy.

admin's picture

I didn't copy, but I better delete this one too. Better be safe than sorry.

Neko-chan's picture

Oops, I guess I'm going to report myself...
I've made this logo and thought it was a cool idea: http://stocklogos.com/logo/lemon-fish
I had even checked the internet and SL to see if there are any similar logos, but didn't find any.
And then today I accidentally ran into this one: http://stocklogos.com/logo/limefish

The idea is obviously the same and I'm really confused now... Shall I delete it???
What do you think, guys?

PS It seems that the SOLD logos aren't shown in the author's portfolio, nor do they come up when doing a search on keywords. That must have been the reasons why I hadn't seen this lemon fish logo.
Is it possible to always show all the logos in portfolio and have the sold ones marked as SOLD?

Element's picture

Hmm that's a tough call imo, but since the other one sold if it was me I would take it down. But you might get away with it, I dunno.

Darla Hallmark's picture

It is sooooo frustrating when that happens. If it was mine, I would take it down. Just to keep my portfolio fresh.

Avalikmom's picture

Yep, hard call alright. However, I think they are drawn different enough that it is safe to keep. Also, yours can be more symbolic, as lemon and fish are common to eat together.

I'm wondering if you had made it, say, a kiwi fish, would the question still come up? I think it's just because the only difference between a lemon and a lime is the colour. Probably best to see how the designer of the lime fish feels about it.

Neko-chan's picture

I actually got the idea from the name itself, "lemonfish". It's a kind of shark and it's my favourite. It does taste a bit like lemon.

inGenious's picture

Stocklogos sells logos and does not sell names, Ivan said:)
The lemonfish there:
http://www.freakingnews.com/pictures/18500/Lemon-Fish-18661.jpg

so there are two different representations for this fish...

AKMulligan's picture

That sucks, but it's happened to a bunch of us.

Neko-chan's picture

Thanks, guys, I've decided to delete this logo, just waited to get more comments last night and then woke up in the morning and Ivan has done it for me LOL
Yeah, this one was a bummer, but I'm new to logos, so that's one lesson learned :-)

slkav's picture

Not sure if it's a violation but this logo looks as if it uses the exact same shape as in the following image :

Stocklogos URL: http://stocklogos.com/logo/asymmetric-2

Violation URL:http://www.korthalsaltes.com/photo/compound_of_two_different_size_asymmetric_pyramids.jpg

XBlueDivision's picture

I think it's more inspiration ...

inGenious's picture

http://stocklogos.com/logo/asymmetric

Valef Creations's picture

guys! its inspiration not copy of an existing logo or a clipart!!!!! so before accusing someone be sure ofwhat you are posting!!!!!

inGenious's picture

ok, please do not mind:)
I thought that is called vectorization and no inspiration. But if the site accepts and takes responsibility for this, I will do the same.

Element's picture

It would inspiration if you took the idea of the warped shape and made a new shape from scratch using the same idea, this is a direct copy.

Valef Creations's picture

Copy of a geometrical shape of an image? Its not a violation to copy a shape. The violation comes when the image is already a clipart or a logo!!!! Also when it comes to geometrical shapes and their combinations there is no parthenogenesis. No one can claim that the shape exists only in that image.

Element's picture

Oh.. Right, so then I could copy that same shape and post 15 logos using it and that would be fine? or do you think you own that shape now because you copied it first? See this is what happens when you copy something instead of creating something.

What happens if that photo you copied turns out to be copyrighted?

Valef Creations's picture

Copying a not unique shape inside a photo doesn't mean that I copied the image!!! Also I made it! I didnt trace or something! Its not an exact copy!!! I copied the idea not the image. Its like making a beetle car vector! You cannot make a beetle car with a lot of ways when it comes to a specific view! Also before accusing me you can go to my portfolio and see my logos - I am not a copycat just because I reproduced a geometrical shape!

ps. The site contains almost 200 images (maybe more) with all kind of prisms!!! Pyramids cubes etc!!! You cannot accuse everyone here for having a prism into his logo! Prism are not something to be declared as a under copyright protection drawing!!!!

inGenious's picture

you're right man, after all I could make myself a program to generate millions of geometric form, upload them to a site and then I can sue anyone...

Element's picture

Ok, so you say you didn't copy the photo, but just the idea... Then why didn't you change the angle? you kept it exactly like the photo, why? If you was just using the idea you could of manipulated it any way you wanted, but you didn't you kept it exactly the same as the photo. You might of as well just traced it.

P.s Ive had enough of this conversation, I'm going to end it here. Btw you don't have to end every sentence with "!!!" Not everything is so dramatic.

Valef Creations's picture

It is a different angle! I made it step by step by watching the photo and not by tracing it! Also StockLogos didnt removed my logos.

Also why try to make it different? The guy who made that image is not the inventor of that kind of prism for Christ sake. Its like trying to make a different angle for pyramids of Giza!

I am done also with this conversation! Since admin dint removed it I dont have to apologize to you! You can complain to him. I did took advantage of the shape but I made it look good!

ps: did you saw my portfolio? Do you really believe that I am from the guys who just take an image and trace it?
dont be mean with me just because you dont like that I used that prism.
ps2: using a lot of "!!!" its my way for typing and chatting is it necessary to criticize me even for this?

Peace!

Element's picture

Why do you keep going on about tracing? I never said you traced it, it makes no difference to me how you get to the desired result.

"It is a different angle! " - .. No, no its not.

"why try to make it different?" - Its called being creative. If you see something and just reproduce it exactly, whats the point?

"I dont have to apologize to you!" - I don't want you to..

You seem to have this assumption that I'm very angry with you or something.. I'm not. I don't care if it stays on this site or gets taken down, I don't care if it sells or doesn't sell. The only reason I'm commenting is to show that I disapprove of the decision to copy a shape from a photo you didn't take.

Now thinking about it maybe it was a bad idea to have this discussion here, if admin so wishes he can remove all my comments from this thread.

admin's picture

Folks. Let's keep this thread clean. Open a new forum topic for such discussions. Thanks

These things would not happen as long as our proposals would be hidden until finishing brief time allotted.

Avalikmom's picture

Actually, they would still happen. Heaven and angel wings are synonymous; as are shopping and shopping bags.

In fact, we'd probably see even more similar logos. A lot of designers try to stay away from being too similar, even if they had the same idea. (If I see a concept in mind, I look to see what has been uploaded for the brief, and just go "oh, hell" if I see something too similar. Then I think of another concept).

Valef Creations's picture

Guys have a look at this guy http://stocklogos.com/logo/lighthouse-company
all of his logos must be fake!!!

Reverse's picture

There's over a dozen and they all look like "live trace" & Photoshop "cutout" filter. Unless author went to all these locations and took the photographs they traced from?

Darla Hallmark's picture

It's possible he's a photographer trying to get something out of his overabundant lighthouse pictures.

I have photos from New England, Wyoming, California, New Mexico, Texas and many other places in my own portfolio.

I would be leery of using a recognizable building, though. I don't think Nubble Light would like to see their image being used as someone's logo.

Valef Creations's picture

I am not sure but image trace must be a violation.

AKMulligan's picture

I'm not sure about that, unless it's privately-owned. I'm guessing that if the designer owns the original photos, they're probably OK. I was suspicious myself and did an image search of a couple of them, which came up empty.

Valef Creations's picture

Perhaps Ivan must ask for the original images before publishing especially when its obviously a trace!!!

Valef Creations's picture

I think Nancy is the right person to confirm this!

West Quoddy head is a recognizable tourist landmark. I don't think they would approve.

You can't just make accusations. If you are claiming somebody traced a logo, you need to link to the logo.

Even though it is not the exact same shape, the easy recognition (overall shape and colors) could be a problem for a potential buyer who would like to trademark this logo. The "Interstate" shield was trademarked in 1967:

I got the message, :This search session has expired. Please start a search session again by clicking on the TRADEMARK icon, if you wish to continue." when I clicked on the last link.

Spintherism's picture

I didn't realize that there was a session and that it would eventually expire. Since I don't see a direct link to the trademark registration in question, here's how to get to it:

1.- Go to the following page: http://www.uspto.gov/trademarks/
2.- Click on TESS (search trademarks).
3.- Click on Basic Word Mark Search.
4.- Search Term is: 0835635 and Field is: Serial or Registration Number.
5.- Click Submit Query.

For those who just want to see the image, here's a direct link:
http://tess2.uspto.gov/ImageAgent/ImageAgentProxy?getImage=72239199
Quoted from that page: "Description of Mark: The drawing is lined for the colors red and blue"

The only similarity is the shape right? I think a shield is a common design. Thanks

Spintherism's picture

It's trademarked for shape and colors. If this logo is bought it would be very hard to trademark and/or the buyer will have problems with the American Association of State Highway and Transportation.

My 2¢ worth,

Spintherism.

PS: Majestic, nothing personal. I'm just trying to help. :o)

Also this logo, by the same designer: http://stocklogos.com/logo/tips4models-5

The silhouette is definitely clip-art:

Good catch! I was pretty sure that was clip art, but wasn't able to find it.

Different enough in my opinion. I like your logo btw.

chrisworks's picture

If I was site admin, I would remove the union logo. What is the significance of having both logos on the site ? The first one (union) uses the same shapes and concept of Applex's one, so ask yourself how would you feel if you was Applex and union logo sold tomorrow.

ApplexDesign's picture

...and variations on http://applexlogos.blogspot.com/2011/11/un-logo-per-i-diritti-umani.html

Avalikmom's picture

Hard call, because yours have necks, these don't.

The concept of having people in a circle holding hands is not unique, nor is having a circle for a head, and some sort of shape to represent arms.

So, I would be inclined to say the other one is safe, less people, no necks, different colours.

Yours is much more attractive though.

Why upload the same logo with different title?

Some clients can't envision how a generic logo would work for them, so you tailor the logo to them after reading their brief.

Just make sure to delete the second one as soon as possible.

Good work guys, keep it up =)

I'll let client know and if he wants we will give money back. Thanks

Which made me wonder about this one:

I think the designer should be banned. All logos that were uploaded by this designer were clip art.

admin's picture

Banned now.

You really need to put up an entry requirement of some sort. It would be less work than approving, deleting, selling, deleting, refunding...

NancyCarterDesign's picture

It requires a lot of designer hours to keep this site only partially clean of stockart and copyright violations. It seems to me that more could be done upfront.

That particular stock vector is also used in this logo by the same designer:

That particular domain was created 10 days after the purchase of the logo, most probably that's the client who bought it from StockLogos.
