Red Hat, Inc. (”Red Hat”) recently became aware that on your website, located at http://www.dataportability.org, you are using art work that is identical to the Fedora Infinity design logo owned by Red Hat. Specifically, I am referring to two images on your site: the green and white logo, as well as the blue and white logo.
My advice, along with Michael Arrington and Marc Canter is to simply tap the community to create a new logo.
It seems that the good people working diligently at the WorkGroup already had the same idea.
The logo should:
- Be distinct, unique and easily identifiable
- Remain clear and identifiable at small sizes (e.g. 16×16)
- Convey the concept of moving/owning/syncing data
- Aesthetically fit in with a broad range of site/application designs
- Provide a clear silhouette that can be rendered in multiple colors
As part of the submission, you must be willing to give up all your rights to the copyright and donate it to the community via the DataPortability project.
Jive Software is donating an iPhone.
TechCrunch is giving a way a week’s worth of free sponsorship.
A month ad space on CenterNetworks.
And, I’m happy to announce that bub.blicio.us will contribute $100.
