Logo Garden has been stealing tons of logos from designers and selling them as stock logos and some attention has to be brought to it.
Just take a look. Also here. It looks like Brent Pelloquin wrote an article on how to get your logos removed.
If you have a logo that was stolen, call this number: 1.888.533.LOGO and tell whoever answers whats going on.
If you would like to bring attention to this, please 'like' this to help.. thanks guys.

Well crap, that sucks.
Also, might want to consider using ligatures on that "T" and "h".
Thanks for starting something to help bring this jackass to justice, Sean.
Thanks Sean!! I was getting set to post something here too. Quite a few of my logos were stolen along with A LOT of other designers. Seems like they were swiped from Logolounge.com.
LogoMotives has some good blog posts about it. Here's one: http://blog-omotives.blogspot.com/
A lot of info on twitter too.

WWF is about to be so far up their ass.
Thanks for heads up
I wouldn't worry. They've already killed themselves with the amount of lawsuits heading their way.
Good on you for helping to tackle this mate. Liked it and RT'd. Watch it though, they might have this up on there as a logo before you know it! :)

Okay, I'm just joking around. But the issue at play is a lot more serious and important. Read more at: http://www.rockpaperink.com/content/column.php?id=88

The kerning seems to be a bit off. Is it intentional?
Had it originally set to -30, didn't really care to change it... glad you guys have the time.
Dribbblers - Please help to inform as many people as you can about this guy. He is not only cheapening our profession, but he's taking food off our tables.
This type of blatant rip-off's have to stop and our voices need to be heard.
Thanks Sean for opening up a discussion here.
and PS Are we really worried about the kerning of this post? Come on...
wow! stealing the wwf, time warner logo etc... isn't a good idea...
this guy is a hack; and should be driven off the planet. thanks for bringing attention to this sean!
I hope all the bad publicity around LogoGarden is a clear message for other fraudulent businesses, designers, and even crowdsourcing initiatives as well.
Here's a great post from Bill Gardner well worth a read about the LogoGarden issue. Keep spreading the word my friends!
This community is so awesome! Thanks for posting this, Sean.
It's awesome that we enjoy our work and look out for each other.
Obama better contact them too! (found similar logo)
Thanks to Prejean Creative, here's a way to get your logos removed from the site through their hosting company Rackspace:
I just want to go on record to say I am not the “John Williams” that owns the site. I am a famous music composer.
i was tweeting this too and got alot of feedback. but i am really sorry for you guys (i am no logo designer at all) and glad you finally can do something against this and get your work back. don't want to be arrogant here, but watch your kerning :)
Geez, why are so many people bringing up the kerning if this? It's pretty obvious that he just slapped and big bold typeface into a 400x300 canvas to grab your attention. Pretty sure Sean wasn't looking to get this into the MoMA, rather just to bring some attention to mass theft.
It's sad and pathetic to see this kind of crap btw. I'm sure he calls himself an entrepreneur, when really the proper title would be thief, as you've stated Sean.

Thanks for sharing this with us Sean. Spread the word to all designers & non-designers. Bring this site down or we could just take care of him GTA style :)
Hopefully the WWF panda is going to take a chair to logogarden.com
