    There is some definite tearing going on here. Either Ubuntu ripped-off them or they ripped-off Ubuntu.

    Is there a date on it?

    the artwork is called "Abstract humans together"

    Humans together is EXACTLY what the Ubuntu logo is. Clear TM violation there.

    Re: ubuntu logo stolen again?

    Oh come on, do you guys have nothing better to do than deliberately try and find photos that look almost exactly like the Ubuntu logo, just so you can complain about the similarities and bug those poor people into changing it for your own interests?

    Let it go for once. It's not your God, it's a logo.

    Let's go! It's a rip-off, it's the law.

    Apparently you have never had any work of yours stolen. you'd know how it feels.

    Anyone brought this to Cannonical's attention yet? If the rip-off is real (and I can see how someone might think this) they might want to know about it.

    Canonical really should know.

    EDIT: I just contacted canonical about the violation. Should be dealt with shortly.

    There is a comments section to that. Post your disapproval. I have.
