    Default Pure GDG

    What do you think of a company that sells a product using a logo that is very similar to another company in a similar business? Do you think it is just good marketing or do you think they are trying to ride the coattails of the well known company and somehow appear to be associated with the well know company? I think it cheapens the integrity of that company and that if their product was worth wild it would not need to make their product look like the other product.

    I tend to think it may be good business but it's still unethical and may be illegal.

    There are a couple of companies that have done that in our business.It doesn't matter if you're the best.

    Trademark issues aside it looks like what it is, usually a cheap attempt to be associated with a succesful operation.
