    Re: ubuntu logo stolen again?

    It barely even looks like the logo. Gosh, it shows people hugging and talks about humans? Only about 100 other logos show that.

    Your ridiculous protection of this name brand is, quite frankly, bizarre. Most users are hypocritical in the fact that they have no problem re-creating proprietary themes and icon sets. Implement a patented design from a large corporation? Gosh, if the implementation is free it must be alright.

    But NOOO, heaven forbid someone make a logo slightly similar to the Ubuntu logo. Heaven forbid someone use the Ubuntu name for something. Protect the "Intellectual Property" if it isn't Micro$oft (a dollar sign for the road for all you BN contributers out there)

    You kids have too much time on your hands.

    Do you have nothing better to do than what your doing? What if they are kids? Then that would mean your harassing kids, for sticking up for something that they believe in. Shame on you.

    Because harassing corporations due to "Intellectual Property" and giving kids conflicting values is a lifelong goal to uphold?

    Shame on YOU.

    I could care less if someone uses Ubuntu's logo, but if that's what floats their boat...

    The concept of a circle of friends as an icon or badge wasn't something that was started by Ubuntu or Canonical, so there's no need to start throwing the toys out the pram.

    And yet it's OK for developers of things like aMSN to swipe the MSN icons and make them obscure? I agree with you here Mr Psycopath, Canonical is becoming a bit of an evil empire.

    So having a different opinion to the rest of you *cough* sheep is automatically being a troll?

    Great.
