Less than 48 hours from the logo launch for Rio 2016, "controversy" emerged with regards to the new emblem as a nonprofit in Colorado noted similarities to its own logo.
Now a prominent Olympic blog has stirred the pot, with more than 2,200 comments on the new design so far.
From my view the new logo does share similarities to the non-profit's mark, but to call this plagiarism is not apt.
Also, I think it is fine that the creators of the new logo drew inspiration from the people dancing in a circle, a la the sardana dance of Spanish culture.
Can't we all just get along with the new logo? It's just a logo, for goodness sake.
