Great. "I piss on your logo!"

Seriously, the only similarity I see with these is that they're all big
'S's. The color and font are different. The Subversion one has the four
dots. The aspect ratio of the backgrounds are a little different, and
the car one isn't even a rectangle. That's a lot of differences for
logos that are so simple. I think it's pretty safe.

Thanks,
Scott
