AnnaArtDesign Wed, 01/25/2012 - 22:43 Wow really, it's the same just facing the other way. It's obvious the stock was used to make the logo.

ROCKADERO™ Thu, 01/26/2012 - 16:54 Yeah sure but it shouldn't be allowed on the site. Valef Creations Fri, 01/27/2012 - 01:18 I think its a different approach. The "original" is just a vertical font. The logo presents "ok" in a form of a human figure. ROCKADERO™ Fri, 01/27/2012 - 01:48 No I'm sorry but both present themselves as vertical fonts and a human figure! Valef Creations Fri, 01/27/2012 - 02:08 Maybe you are right.

Mine: http://stocklogos.com/logo/boxed-ninja Other: http://stocklogos.com/logo/box-ninja My logo is newer. Should I remove it? AKMulligan Sat, 01/28/2012 - 17:07 I would.

I'm new to this and I do not know what is allowed. actually find all of his logos http://es.123rf.com/photo_11020066_metalicos-de-anclaje.html http://es.123rf.com/photo_11029607_pequeno-pajaro-azul.html some examples.... Valef Creations Wed, 02/01/2012 - 15:12 He can trace the image instead of downloading it! GoldAngle Wed, 02/01/2012 - 15:17 http://es.123rf.com/photo_11029607_pequeno-pajaro-azul.html http://stocklogos.com/logo/birdie-1 that means.... I can trace any image... and its ok??? NancyCarterDesign Wed, 02/01/2012 - 15:34 No it's not ok to trace or to upload any not original artwork. Darla Hallmark Wed, 02/01/2012 - 15:36 No. This has been discussed before. If someone wants to offer a logo image on more than one LOGO site, they are taking a risk of accidentally selling the same image twice. It's not a large risk, however, since logos sell fairly slowly. An image on a STOCK site, though, is a different matter. Stock sites are much busier, and sales are faster. There is also usually a delay in getting the stock file down. What is most likely to happen is that the stock images will sell before the logo images, and the logos will have to come down. What may happen, is that the logo image will sell, AND the stock image will sell, and everyone will be quite unhappy, and the person who posted on both sites will ruin his career as a designer. AKMulligan Wed, 02/01/2012 - 15:05 Which others have you found? I'm having trouble getting a match. GoldAngle Wed, 02/01/2012 - 15:30 http://stocklogos.com/logo/anchor-0 http://es.123rf.com/photo_11020066_metalicos-de-anclaje.html Darla Hallmark Wed, 02/01/2012 - 15:40 http://stocklogos.com/logo/devil-xd http://es.123rf.com/photo_9886042_diablo-lindo.html http://stocklogos.com/logo/doggies http://es.123rf.com/photo_9886041_doggy.html NancyCarterDesign Wed, 02/01/2012 - 15:37 I really think that these should not have even been published. Clipart is not that hard to spot and find with google and tineye. GoldAngle Wed, 02/01/2012 - 15:46 ok thanks... i think its clear about all their works.... thank nancy.... I know you are famous here !!! :) thanks for your answer admin Thu, 02/02/2012 - 22:18 It's not as easy, many times when I check first I get 0 matches and a few hours or even days later there is a match. I don't know if this is just me or what... For example I'm pretty sure this logo will have a match, but I can't find any: http://stocklogos.com/logo/creeky-owl Do you guys get a match? AKMulligan Fri, 02/03/2012 - 09:42 Same here. Nancy seems to have much better luck with google images than I do. I have no idea why. Spintherism Thu, 02/02/2012 - 14:25 Another two logos by the same designer: http://stocklogos.com/user/mrf http://stocklogos.com/logo/cupcake-parties http://www.bigstockphoto.com/image-8193262/stock-vector-cup-cake http://stocklogos.com/logo/4-clowns-game http://www.ricafesta.com.br/vitrine_produtos.asp?secao=&categoria=&subcategoria=&id=5290&produto= --- EDIT: I just noticed that M.R.F.'s avatar is the same as YnM Creations' avatar on bigstockphoto.com and 123rf.com, so maybe this is just a stock vector designer recycling his designs as logos. Maybe that's why all of his designs on bigstockphoto said "zero downloads". Also, the owl in http://stocklogos.com/logo/creeky-owl can be found on his, now defunct, website (see archive). But, then again, that still doesn't explain the clown above and the (already deleted) hummingbird... In any case, most probably this is not a case of plagiarism (and hopefully he is aware that he must take down the stock vectors for sale once the logos are sold here). Peace, Spintherism. NancyCarterDesign Wed, 02/01/2012 - 16:32 http://stocklogos.com/logo/five-feathers http://stocklogos.com/logo/five-feathers 3rd row, on right.

AKMulligan Thu, 02/02/2012 - 08:10 Hah! Did something vaguely similar just a couple of hours before. I had the url for my jewelry web site on my clipboard and when I meant to paste a "Congratulations" on the thread for a sold logo – there were a bunch of them and I'm lazy – pasted in the url and hit "save." Luckily, I caught it in time before I started looking like a spammer. Spintherism Thu, 02/02/2012 - 16:26 From the same designer: http://stocklogos.com/logo/xcapades http://www.thecoronas.co.uk/2.html AKMulligan Wed, 02/01/2012 - 17:15 http://stocklogos.com/logo/clinical-laboratory-espinoza http://corsidigraficadotnet.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/icone_chimica.jpg Almir C Wed, 02/01/2012 - 17:49 http://stocklogos.com/logo/plusteck-logo http://stocklogos.com/logo/blood-20 AKMulligan Wed, 02/01/2012 - 18:21 Same concept, different execution: http://stocklogos.com/logo/lucky-0 http://nerdcereal.com/color-blind-test/ http://es.123rf.com/photo_2694772_cuatro-hojas-de-trebol-y-un-corazon-forma.html markrtid Thu, 02/02/2012 - 13:59 Pure coincidence. Hardly a ground-breaking 'concept' but then again neither was the execution. I'm new to all this but I must confess I don’t really feel comfortable with the self policing of work by fellow designers but regrettably there is a need when taking into consideration the amount of designs under scrutiny come from the Briefs section. There are more mermaids, hummingbirds and fetching dogs over in 'Briefs' at the moment that one could question if many are the same concept, different execution? The Ariel mermaid was a classic though. Made me laugh out loud that one did. Darla Hallmark Thu, 02/02/2012 - 14:20 Ultimately, Ivan makes the decision about what is or is not a rules violation. We just point things out to him. I agree with you on the cross/usb image. Parallel evolution.

Spintherism Thu, 02/02/2012 - 19:48 It's the same case with the user named M.R.F. (here's a link to my edited post above).

Crumbit Sat, 02/04/2012 - 10:29 Someone already pointed out that his logo "Clinical laboratory Espinoza" is clipart. The other logo in his gallery is a rip off of an existing logo from Stocklogos.

Waiting until they are sold isn't a good time to find out. AKMulligan Sun, 02/05/2012 - 22:09 I said that on another thread. http://stocklogos.com/topic/banned-designers Crumbit Mon, 02/06/2012 - 13:46 You are right, but Stocklogos profits in either way, so why would they care? admin Mon, 02/06/2012 - 14:12 No we don't because we have to give money back. I'm removing all his logos. AKMulligan Mon, 02/06/2012 - 14:53 You probably want to delete his sock-puppet account, too. http://stocklogos.com/user/bsind admin Mon, 02/06/2012 - 15:20 You think it's the same person? AKMulligan Mon, 02/06/2012 - 16:05 When I was posting in the thread about banned users, this person had a whole bunch of logos that were the same as daemon's. It looked like he was in the process of migrating them to a new account and hadn't deleted them from the old one yet. As an admin, of course, you would have information on logos that have been deleted and billing information that would confirm it, but I'm certain it's the same person. Crumbit Mon, 02/06/2012 - 15:23 I'm sorry, but I don't think you're rigorous enough when it comes to these things. admin Mon, 02/06/2012 - 15:27 What do you suggest we do besides banning and deleting all logos? Crumbit Mon, 02/06/2012 - 15:33 I suggest in getting more people to work on finding out if the logos are genuine before they are published to prevent this from happening in the first place. Yes, I'm aware that would cost you more, but it's worth it. admin Mon, 02/06/2012 - 18:20 Oh, well it's not a matter of work force, but technology. We check each logo with tineye and google, but we don't always get a hit. But as these engines get better we will have less of such cases. I'm also working on something that will prevent this happening altogether, but it's a secret for now because I'm not sure if it's going to work or not. Thanks again!

AKMulligan Thu, 02/09/2012 - 10:58 I would love to know why google images works so much better for you than for me! I did a search on that image and came up empty-handed. NancyCarterDesign Thu, 02/09/2012 - 11:06 Well this one I didn't do an image compare search... but it's weird how that works differently for each of us. AKMulligan Thu, 02/09/2012 - 11:11 I even grayscaled the silhouette, since color sometimes confuses the search. It's frustrating when I just KNOW something isn't original but I can't find proof. (I'm talking about the cat, not the coffee stain.) NancyCarterDesign Thu, 02/09/2012 - 11:16 oops -- I didn't realize it was the cat one. Orientation was the problem on both.

AKMulligan Fri, 02/10/2012 - 09:31 I learned back in art school that you have to significantly change an image to make it your own. If it's recognizable, it's copyright infringement, even if you drew it from scratch. Remember all the flack about the Obama poster that was created from an unattributed photograph? http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2009-07-15-obama-poster_N.htm It's especially egregious that this designer copied photographs used by podiatrists for another podiatrist's logo. grego66 Fri, 02/10/2012 - 18:13 A lot also depends on what field the logo lives. Anybody familiar with the Quark logo debacle? They got away with that because they argued the logo worked in a different field than say the Scottish Arts Council logo. They are practically identical. If the two were submitted here for example only the original would survive, and quite rightly so. In the hard copy world they got away with it. Strange.

My guess is that the designer started with the downloaded vector clip-art and modified it a lot, but certain characteristics remain. Indeed, there are several "coincidences", particularly in the random spots. See a size comparison here: http://img67.xooimage.com/files/7/0/c/trout_comparison-316bec6.jpg It's now up to the Admin to decide, maybe it is unique enough... Peace, Spintherism. EDIT: Yeap, Admin decided it's okay. :o) inGenious Fri, 02/10/2012 - 04:45 First, greetings to all fishermen! To see the fall was copied should overlapping images. After all you can not put a copyright to the form of nature without stylish this or some improuvemets. How do you know that to achieve the logo did not use a picture like this: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b9/Rainbow_Trout.jpg ROCKADERO™ Fri, 02/10/2012 - 03:27 Hurray for fishermen!

It's conceptually the same is this one: http://stocklogos.com/sites/default/files/talk.jpg which is discussed by Ivan in this thread: http://stocklogos.com/topic/10-really-clever-logos I would remind everyone that Applex had to pull a logo when Tabitha kicked off about one of her designs having the same concept. I'd be wary of such close designs, even if they both are about different things. AKMulligan Fri, 02/10/2012 - 15:13 Could be a coincidence, but I agree that the stock logos one is too close and should be hugely altered or removed.
