Cartoon of the Week: Did Facebook steal ‘Current’ logo?

We can’t go a month without hearing about Facebook facing some tides or being sued. Since the most popular social network worldwide announced that it’s turning to financial services now, the company was first accused of not being trustworthy when it comes to dealing with people finances, as it couldn’t deal with people’s data and privacy in the past.

Now, an online banking company called Current is claiming that Facebook has stolen its logo and used it for Facebook’s newly unveiled cryptocurrency play.

Stuart Sopp, CEO of Current, told CNBC: “This is a funny way to try and create trust in a new global financial system – by ripping off another fintech firm… We put six months of hard work into this [logo] with that design firm, which they basically reused for Facebook without changing much… Facebook is a big company that should have done their due diligence on this.”

If we take a look at both logos, we notice that Calibra, Facebook’s financial system logo, bears a resemblance to Current’s logo.
