Logothief

LogoThief is a great idea by 'persons unknown'. If you are the sort of person that doesn't give a hoot about stealing other designers' logo creations, then be warned, as you might end up being featured on LogoThief.com

Poor Jeff Fisher routinely finds himself the target of plagiarists, and having to expend so much emotional and practical energy simply trying to stop these delinquents to reclaim what is rightfully theirs.
