I can forgive them though, because they are great at naming their fireworks.

Woah, that's pretty much exactly the same as The Offspring logo! If they have that logo copyrighted, then they could definitely sue, though I doubt they would. lol :p

Haha, I'm full of respect that they managed to create such a story behind a regular fireworks.

And yeah, totally (R).

Why? Copyright is fucked up and so is suing for every fucking little thing. It is not as if they abuse it, or take advantage of the relationship the logotype has to the band. It is minuscule and barley noticeable.

I never said they should, or would. I was just saying that they probably could if they wanted to. I was not suggesting that they should sue over it...

Seriously. Am I missing something, or is that just incredibly poor taste? Especially for a product designed to celebrate (white) American independence.

i believe i mentioned this brand in a thread a few weeks ago... may have named the wrong one... idk.http://www.dirtcheapfireworks.com/images/large/firecrackers_40.jpg
I have a bunch of these somewhere, leftover from the 4th a couple years ago. I prefer Black Cat's version. They're louder than these.

I pulled the image straight from reddit. If it weren't for the fact that it was hilariously named Trail of Tears, I porobably wouldn't have posted it.

The Offspring need to reply in kind to this and make the name of their next album "Super Charged Maximum Load."

Does any one remember those UNOFFICIAL sunglasses that had the SAME EXACT LOGO. if anyone needs to be sued its them. With this one the flames aren't dead on. Those sunglasses were completely ripped off.

It's mostly the girl's-handwriting/graffiti art style of font with an offbeat "punkish" looking logo that makes it similar. Also, the yellow seems to be the exact same shade. Conspiracy of One really did have a unique, eye-catching album cover, if I saw that record, I would make the same assumption. Not that it's a big deal.

It wouldn't surprise me if Bouncing Souls came out and said that they were going for a similar style if questioned about it. They didn't really rip off anything, it's just done in the same vein. I think it looks pretty cool myself.

Man, that would be so great for playing the "...in my pants" song title game. So far, the best one I've heard was "Eruption... in my pants"

That would be AMAZING! Or Hiroshima and Nagasaki themed.

Am I the only one here who understands that album art is typically not a trademarked creation of the *band*? Chances are some artist came up with the flaming skull, and the Offspring bought the rights to use it. And so did many other people. And artwork that seems similar (like that Bouncing Souls album) is often *shocker* done by the same artist.
