    That makes me happy. Unless you're lying. And I can tell when you are.

    They're too small and they're not worth the trouble. What do they stand to gain from ripping off the logo anyway? If it were any bigger then yes, it'd be an issue, but as it stands it's not worth the legal fees to send a cease and desist or whatever. That's really the whole story. Thank you to VictorSledge for bringing it to our attention. I wonder if he could tell us more. Did you talk to the people working in the shop?

    The big shock was how blatant it was. Madster you're stupid.

    You really wouldn't be able to sue. It's like Delta Force's lawsuit against Activision.

    but...it really doesn't make sense...Color Revolution?
    I don't even.

    and what did they say about some stranger taking random pictures?

    I'll save up whatever "ask them to buy me" credit I have for a Wii U.

    Why not get something worthwhile out of it?

    I should call them and be like "yeah....You know you're using a registered logo? Registered to someone other than you." I just want to hear their response is all.

    That's what I'm wondering. Like I wonder if Victor told them he knew where the logo is from. I wonder if they read the site.

    So, Victor is the owner of Color Revolution and just wanted to bring it to GR's attention to help Color Revolution gain popularity.

    yeah it might just be a case of "we didn't know" about the trademark, and since it is a slightly different logo they might get away with it in the court of law...doubtful though...
