LogoMaid Rips Off SimpleBits Logo

LogoMaid - a design chop shop - has ripped off Dan Cederholm's SimpleBits logo, then gone so far as to threaten a lawsuit against Dan claiming he stole the logo.

Yeah, right.

John Gruber has more on this, and I'm posting merely to add my PageRank weight to the side that roots squarely against outfits like (and specifically) LogoMaid, the ripoff artists.

Sue, Dan. Sue.

    Oh okay. I wasn't aware that CSS coding required no graphic design skill, and was simply "play[ing] with tables and such." I was under the impression that to be successful as a CSS coder, you actually, you know, had to be a real designer as well. I thought you needed to know about line, color, contrast, and other aspects of traditional design, but you've proven to me that the only thing involved is… um… oh wait, all of that!

    Why don't you try commenting on something you have actual experience with before declaring something a "bunch of bullshit."
