eevBLAB #46 - Indiegogo Campaign Logo Fraud
« on: April 24, 2018, 01:12:55 pm »
Some Indiegogo campaigns are fraudulently using the EEVblog logo (among others) as "Featured In" in order to trick consumers into believing the project is popular and has been mentioned/endorsed by these companies.

Indiegogo supposedly take Copyright & Trademark infringement "seriously",  but they have done nothing to remove the EEVblog logo

Dave,
see if you can get this guy interested in it: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UChBJtu4BhT8b8t9Qe9R-EZg
He's a copyright attorney in the US with a popular YouTube channel, and a strong tech background, I'd be surprised if he wasn't a subscriber to eevblog

As if it wasn't scam enough (and as if IGG would act on complains)
