  • Plagiarism or not?

    Hello everyone! I have a client with an unusual request regarding a folder for a conceptual electronic music album. He asked to copy the Sega Master system logo and replacing the name with his own, like „Name Master System“. The track titles are also videogame alike. Do you think is a right thing to do? Will it be taken just as a tribute or a lame copy? plagiarism? or creative copy? thanks for your time

    SEGA's logo is a registered trademark. Attempting to cash in on its brand recognition by copying its look and feel (even though the words are different) could easily be construed as a trademark violation and subject to a legal action.

    If I had a client who suggested something like that, I'd suggest that he/she consult with his attorney before proceeding.

    Bottom line, it's a stupid thing to do and, possibly, illegal.
