MarkMatters is somewhat reluctant of the idea of a digital pillory. In this respect, we do have found an initiative that stays at the good side: LogoThief. Here you will find logo’s that have been copied by others.
Most examples on this website are evident copies. Funny to say, most clear cases deal with original and distinctive logo’s. These logo’s have been used by the copycats in a new logo. With some examples you can discuss whether the concept behind the logo is that strong and the logo that original. Calling somebody a thief is (at least in these cases) quite something, in our view.
Overall, this a nice website (when it sticks to the identical ones) with some beautiful examples. Hopefully this is also an incentive for the copycats to be original.
Here a nice example:
