See [[Georges Perec]]'s novel, "[[La Vie mode d'emploi]]
I definitely agree. It would be
better to change the concept
into something alive, like a
"tree" with branches, and leaves,
at least it would be something
alive, except so many other
logos already use this "knowledge
tree" concept that it has been
overworked. Like the puzzle
concept, which is in use by
Microsoft Office suite, it's old
and moldy cheese and we need
to find new cheese.
Lebanon uses a whole tree on its flag, and Canada uses a single leaf.
By your reasoning either of them could shut us down for a breach of
their trademarks. :-)
