...or at least alert YouTube. Saw this in the Max Payne 3 thread and thought you should see it.

At the bottom:

REPORT ->
Impersonation ->
My YouTube Channel is being impersonated *OR* My trademark or company is being impersonated

Of course only Cheapy can file that report, unless Javery was his lawyer, which would be awesome.

He could almost pass it off as parody or a coincidence if the only thing that was similar was the name (it's not like it's some off the wall name or anything), but he copied the logo and color style as well.

I'd be more insulted that they just tacked on a Z.

But yes, I'd definitely report them for copyright infringement. Bastards straight-up aped the logo.

Doesn't even have the common sense to change up the logo whatsoever.

There's their old logo, which isn't exactly original either. At least he didn't go all the way with the imitation:



His twitter: https://twitter.com/#!/cheapassgamerz

The icon is identical to one of the CAG twitter accounts: https://twitter.com/#!/videogamedeals

Gee, I wonder why I can't seem to find someplace to comment on this moron's videos.

Edit: Found it. I will refrain from going off on him, but I do plan to thumb all his vids down. Is it REALLY that hard to come up with an original name/brand? :roll:

Had to laugh at this bit:

And... if your a hater, go ahead and leave a dislike, we all know uMad BRO!

You are missing something. First of all we are not talking about copyright. That extends to works of art. We are likely in the realm of trademarks and I assume Cheapy has gone through the trouble trademarking his brand (if not I'd do that asap).

Second, the green/orange/black color combo, "CAG" and the Cheap Ass Gamer name all point to the brand he has created at this site (which is well known in the industry). Again, assuming this is trademarked, anyone who comes out with something called "cheapassgamerz" is likely infringing on that trademark - especially since it relates to video games and even moreso because he stole the logo right off of this site for his own use. This will create confusion in the marketplace which a trademark is designed to protect against.

Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

I think this is what you're looking for:

They have the golden arches, we have the golden arch

“Look…me and the McDonald’s people got this little misunderstanding. See, they’re McDonald’s…I’m McDowell’s. They got the Golden Arches, mine is the Golden Arcs. They got the Big Mac, I got the Big Mick. We both got two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions, but their buns have sesame seeds. My buns have no seeds.”

It's arcs. ;)

No, you couldn't. You could design another logo using the "CAG" acronym but it could not closely resemble the one that Cheapy uses. That particular font and color combination are associated with his brand and his brand only. Also, if Cheapy was extra smart he would file all of his logo trademark applications in black and white which provides even broader protection.
