It's just an isometric cube...

There are a few other companies/websites that use a logo similar to the Pandora's. I think there's some shipping company that has it.

Um.... Nope.

The Pandora logo has a different design, like it was drawn by hand. This is just a perspective cube.

Co-incidentally, PHP Object Generator already had one uncannily like the Pandora logo, but yellow:

I remember because I started a similar thread about them back in the day.

What I love about the OpenPandora logo is that its like a 'next-gen' SGI logo .. and in fact, the Pandora is sort of like the SGI box I always dreamed of in the 90's .. ;)

i wouldnt bother with any type of litigation, the samsung product will be a flash in the pan. don't think anyone will care if the pandora is using or had its logo nicked as its a pretty standard logo based on a shape. i bet there are millions of logos with circles or even cubes

my company name uses (still does see siglink)the logo dating back 2000 the same as the invisible walls feature on gametrailers.com dont really care tbh as logn as they dont claim that ive nicked it im happy :P

Oh no. It's a box shape. They stole it. What shall we ever do?

Get real.

I think some people are just searching for the most inane things to post about. It's really scratching the bottom of the barrel now.

For very upside-down values of "next-gen" :)
