Close, but no cigar...and Abe, great post
The question they really missed is Who cares?
Move along people, New Roms out, move along .....
Well, the have to post something to get people riled up and posting to their website.
did we all forget that the very word "droid" and all things related originated from and is a registered trademark of lucasfilm ltd? the droid is obviously more based on the original designs of R2-D2, more evidence to support my theory you ask? how about the R2-D2 model of the droid? in my opinion, this post is alot like the movie, "23" you can twist **** anyway you want to make it seem plausible.
I'm with raven (I'm no star wars fanatic) in that it looks more like r2d2. The android from the atari game looks more like a cockroach.
Sent from my Tapatalk using Droid
Moto is paying Lucasfilm Ltd millions in royalties to use Droid and all the Star Wars items....
Does it matter? I mean that Lynx game is ancient and there is no way that Android was copyrighted, is there?
Actually, it makes me want to go out and get a copy of that game!
Trademarked? Yes. Originated? NO WAY! Lucas did not originate the word droid, he merely was wise enough to trademark it. Similar to Pat Riley trademarking the term Three-peat.
On another note, i know someone was making fun of apple at the beginning of the thread, but they actually did get sued for their logo a couple years back.
not stolen, maybe inspired. Just think of all the images you see in a day, they all go into your mind permanently, maybe the people who designed the logo saw this a long time ago and it provided the inspiration.
Even if they intentionally "stole" the idea from some stupid video game, they redesigned it, recolored it, and reapplied it as a concept logo for a product (as a logo).
What do you call 1,000 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean....
