About a month or so ago, we caught wind of Crooks & Castles ripping one of our logos (our shop logo). A couple people mentioned this straight bite on a few blogs and sites but we didn’t say anything personally. Although, a few members of the Crooks crew tried to defend themselves by pointing out that their “C” wasn’t the crass font (which could be found on just about every free font download site, where we got it from) but in fact a “snake”. They further debated that their company was based on stealing and tweaking graphics and calling it their own.
Well, again this morning, it was brought to our attention that Crooks was using the graphic again. As if they weren’t already called out on it before. Except this time, the “C” no longer represented a snake (i’m assuming this is because it would have cost them too much to get that kind of definition on their super high quality new eras). Anyways, thanks for the unknowingly attempt of flattery but seriously, get off our jock already.
