Speaking of similar logos, PayPal has sued Pandora Internet Radio for trademark infringement, claiming that Pandora’s new logo is “unlawfully similar” to that of PayPal’s.
Pandora debuted its new logo and identity as part of a rebranding campaign in October 2016. PayPal claims that Pandora imitated the central features of its iconic logo – the sans-serif, block style P in uppercase with no counter (hole) and the deep blue color range.
The online payment company also submitted 110 pages of social media posts from mobile users who were getting confused between the apps of the two companies and mistakingly opening the wrong one.
