DailyDirt: Leggo My Logo...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Shakespeare wrote: What's in a name? That which we call a rose. By any other name would smell as sweet. -- but how much does a company's name really matter? Here are a few quick links on corporate logos and some branding twists. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    You can, Toucan!

    I thought about sending this when I first read it in the Detroit News, but my brain had a caffeine deficiency and I couldn't think of a silly way to frame it.

    way to go for being so delusional & entitled to think that they are the exclusive owners of logos with toucans on 'em

    I opened the link to the logos but did not look at them for several minutes as I was distracted by something else. When I accessed the page, I didn't really pay much attention as to what I was seeing, just a bunch of logos. I noticed that the logos were different, but did not recognize, at first, that they were merged with competitors. What does this tell us about the power of a logo?
