Drake accused of Logo Infringement by Toronto?


Recommended Posts

Drake's overwhelming love for his city may have gotten him into a little issue with some Canadian Officials.

The Toronto rapper decided to pay tribute to his city with a billboard for his sophomore album Take Care. The city has found some issues with the billboard because of similarities to the city's official logo, an inaccurate population and crappy art. Believing that these factors will cause confusion about Toronto statistics.

Francine Antonio Forte, a spokesperson for the city of Toronto, says: ""that the treatment of the word Toronto used on the billboard is very similar to the wordmark that forms part of the Toronto logo. The similarity of the wordmarks, in conjunction with other creative elements used for the billboard, may cause some confusion about the source of the information. ... While the city is proud of its local and international talent, we have a general practice of reviewing and addressing reported or known cases related to the possible misuse of the Toronto logo."
