my logo was declined for "too similar to an existing logo", its weird because before I uploaded it I searched logos with a keyword that might be related to my logo (like 'chess'), but I didn't find any logo that is similar to mine.

Here it is my logo:

I recommend that you use this site https://www.tineye.com/ to make sure your logo has never been used.

I personally think that there's too much detail in it, most of the shape details won't be visible at small sizes. To differentiate it from the proff logo and alike, maybe try drawing it as a line art.

@ava19nauval how did you figure that out?
@Denmaz48 thanks, I just searched the similarity only on LG through keywords before

@vianthedesigner I also searched your logo based on some keywords and didn't manage to find a similar one, but with yandex search of your image it showed an image that ava19nauval presented to you. For future cases, just upload image to yandex and see if there is something similar. I had similar cases in past, sometimes keywords search on google does not give you the results, but yandex is pretty good with similarities.

Hi @vianthedesigner

I don't mean to say your design is exactly the same. I admit, the difference is clear. but the concept looks similar. like both have the same two back pieces even though the two front pawns are indeed different. Even the both colors are the same. I remembered as if something resembled the idea of ​​"apple bite" with "banana bite" (lol, If you get what i mean from logo review couple days ago). I didn't say this was so bad but I would be very curious how the admin or others would respond to this. good luck bud! don't give up!

Definitively this is very sensitive area. We all succumb to this way of finding concepts. We see something and make the same connection just changing objects or the look of things. Sure it's a different logo but is everything fine?

For me the key question is: How many logos with some particular, distinctive concept do exist? If there is only one or two we shouldn't go this way. We risk copyright infringement. If there is much more, we can brand it as generic concept and legally go on... until we find we provide generics.

Good example is our unbeatable heraldic lion. We can sell it and sell it, changing claws, jaws, tail but this is still the same basic concept - so far from real animal. We know it and clients look for it. Mutual understanding. Everything works fine because nobody can claim copyrights.

Hello,

Just to clarify further, particularly for novice users: A designer can not claim the rights to a concept. Copyright only exists for a specific execution of a concept and copyright doesn't prevent others from creating a different execution of the same concept.

So, if designer A creates a logo featuring a cartoon walrus with a necktie, glasses and a Bluetooth headset, designer B can create a different cartoon walrus with a different necktie, different glasses and a different Bluetooth headset (all details are unique; different angle, different proportions, different colors, different style). Designer A can only reserve the rights to the specific execution of the concept and can not go after designer B for using the same concept. Now, if designer C makes a cartoon walrus that is almost identical to the one created by designer A (same details), then in that case, there is copyright infringement and designer A can go ahead with a claim or violation report against designer C. By the way, even if the number of differences outnumbered the number of similarities between the two walruses, designer A could have a case if there is any possibility of confusion between the two logos.

And that's the most important word here: confusion.

The bottom line is to try to avoid confusion among the clients of the clients of the designers; that is, two companies should not have logos that are too similar. Going back to the particular case at the beginning of this forum topic, there could be confusion even if the chess pieces are different and therefore, the two logos should not coexist.

Hope this helps,

Ortega Graphics
