The fact nobody has heard of them is exactly why they did copy them. They thought they'd get away with it because nobody would notice. This is a very common tactic when brands copy logos rather than make their own.

Which means that even their act of copying someone else's work wasn't even an original tactic in itself.

Well, now both companies have a lot of unpaid for publicity.


No guarantee it will do them any good ... but it might.

Indeed but that may not be more expensive then paying for the equivalent PR.

However, if they do really have a few million empty cans made and preprinted deciding how to re-brand them could be a a costly problem.

Still better for the bike company with its 15 million turnover and 28 employees.
