Facebook stealing GMod 10 logo?


I was looking at my invitations section when I stumbled upon that as the image for the “my stuff’ widget invitation”

this is what it looks like on my side: http://i26.tinypic.com/2uzffus.png

SUE 'EM IF IT IS! You’ll have enough money to produce gmod 11! retail and on steam! bwahahaha

Lazy bastards can’t make their own icons.

it’s not even that, it’s the point that the icon makes no sense with the widget is what agitates me
that was the first thing i noticed, that there was a g for a icon yet the widget is called ‘my stuff’
last time i checked there was no g in the words ‘my stuff’. i mean, unless you want to rearrange the entire meaning to ‘mug stuff’ then okay i understand, but facebook still sucks. the fact that you can’t design your profile is ridiculous. but either way, it’s still fucked up that it is seemingly an identical copy of the gmod 10 logo. however the image is a little brighter.

P.S. and now that i see it… TOTALLY ignore the google search that says rapist, i am not trying to become a rapist.
just for clarification :wink:

To me, it looks like a custom widget made by some random person, not by Facebook. Especially since it’s called the “my stuff” widget. But I don’t know, I don’t use Facebook, so I have no idea if you can make a custom widget.

Either way it’s still stupid that they didn’t make their own icon.

negative, i checked their terms to make sure about that before posting this thread, cause i would’ve felt like an idiot afterwards

i quote: 11. You may use the logos we make available to developers or issue a press release or other public statement so long as you follow our Platform Guidelines.

Platform Guidelines: http://wiki.developers.facebook.com/index.php/Platform_Guidelines

if they make them available to developers that means they created them
wait… “created”… lol

I don’t think I have enough bad spelling ratings for you.

Why the hell would anybody steal the Gmod logo to begin with?

It’s a fucking G with blue around it, people are bound to make something similar.

So, what you’re saying is, some guy used the GMod logo for a Facebook app, so Facebook should be sued for stealing the GMod logo?

And what does the Widget do? For all you know it could somehow (not very likely, but still) relate to GMod.

Should Pepsi sue anyone who releases a model/skin which has the Pepsi logo?

Should I be sued if I make a script the changes the Facebook logo to the Wikipedia logo and then give the script to people?

@buttsex I’ve spelt every word correctly.

@Commie because they’re idiots?

@Space there is something called a TRADEMARK

@Carlisle the image was given to him by facebook, as you can clearly see in my post above. it does not relate to gmod in anyway. yes, because that is the pepsi logo and trademark. yes, because that’s tampering with a website that isn’t yours.

Maybe it’s because G is a relatively common letter?


Grammar and capitalization are part of spelling.

You sure you know about the internet?

@trent actually spelling and grammar go together. punctuation and capitalization are together too. two totally different methods of typing and writing. however this is the internet, noone gives a flying fuck and I CaN TaLk LiKe ThIs iF i WaNtEd ToO, BuT PeOpLE WoUlDn’T LiStEn tO mE

The owner of facebook is the worlds youngest billionare, he has lots of money.

Spelling != grammar

Grammar == punctuaton + capitalisation + more

@gordon he should get a face job with all his money… lol

@flap gee you’re sure the one to be correcting us both

That gmod logo falls under this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Threshold_of_originality

holy shit

comp i did not understand one word on that wiki lol

Are you kidding me?
