    I saw this stand at a mall in upstate NY. Some things about it seem pretty familiar for some reason...

    If you guys arn't affiliated with this store, I thought you might want to know. If you are, I'm sorry and you can ignore my post.

    If you need more details feel free to PM me.

    Is the GR logo even registered? I hate to admit it, but it seems like those guys might have a valid legal defense if it isn't. Still, that doesn't justify them.

    Also, there's a plumbing biz 'round here using a poorly edited Super Mario Sunshine image with Mario holding a plunger. It's kinda funny.

    Just pointing it out, technically that logo is different enough to the GR one that it should be fairly legal. It says C+R, not G+R.

    Also, that's such a better font.

    Haha I like how drawing a black line over the logo justifies "different".

    Wow, nice find. Who would have thought someone would try this with GR's logo?

    It is what it is. Changing a couple of little things is enough, who cares if it's stealing ideas?

    I feel sort of sorry for these guys.

    I mean, they seem to be a mom and pop shop who are just trying to compete against the Game Stops and Best Buys out there, and they're likely fans of the site, they're just not very creative and can't think of a name for themselves.

    And now they'll have to deal with lawyers.

    Didn't say it was cool, just said it was technically legal.
