I appreciate your comments, guys. When you go for simple, there are going to be similarities. It's the little touches that differentiate it. That, and being used in a different industry.

Actually it immediately reminded me of the Mammoth logo by Hornall Anderson. The concept/industry is very similar except theirs also doubles as tusks.**http://identityworks.com/also_noted/Mammoth_Mountain_144.gif*http://www.hornallanderson.com/%23/project/75/0/*

Lovely mark. Something so simple is always going to have similarities to others. It reminds me of the grooveshark logo - http://listen.grooveshark.com**I guess you've got to work out how many similar logos and how similar they are make it a trademark issue. Nice work never the less.*

Chris (cseven), John, Epsilon - I really appreciate your support guys.**I'm not opposed to people pointing out similarities, unless it's petty. That's one of the reasons I joined LogoPond, so I could get feedback on my work. It's impossible to have a mental catalog of every logo ever designed, so more eyes is a good thing. I do pay attention when someone points out something that is legitimately too close to something I've designed. In the crowded world of logo design, that would mean it would have to be pretty much identical.**I'm holding my ground here on principle. I don't want to send the message that I'm going to cave in every time someone points out a similarity.**Too often people tend to think the internet is a free-for-all and they can say whatever they like. Not so ... slander is slander.

I personally believe this logo is different enough that it's not an infringement on the other. Just my two cents. And, as a designer, I always keep in mind that...ultimately, there's really nothing new under the sun. Not that it justifies plagiarism when it actually does happen, but creative minds often think alike, even when it's not intended to happen. Blatant plagiarism is one thing, creative similarities are another. Good work, Quirk.

Quirk-great image. similarities in others.. YAWN.. you've excuted the style superior to any of the others pointed out. %0D*mmsweb needs his head checked and is lucky this site if so friendly, or he'd need a real flame suite. lol..
