    I was looking for some earbuds and thought LP had brought out a pair because the website I was browsing have copied Linkin Park's logo. It's basically the same but Lypertek have rotated it a little.

    Surely this constitutes a breach of copyright? If so is there a way we can get word to the guys so they can take action?

    Clearly LP's logo from ATS onwards turned 90 degrees. Probably an innocent mistake though.

    I would argue this is straight up theft

    LP's logo has always been Illuminati propaganda. I don't get why everyone's surprised more corporate businesses are exposing themselves.

    US trademark law only sees infringement if there can be substantial confusion between similar products and/or they're in the same market space. If there is no chance of consumers confusing products, no issue.

    If someone sued they would lose quickly and definitively because neither of these examples are a breach of their right to their logo. These are both tech companies so they're not competing in anywhere near the same marketplace as Linkin Park's music or merch.
