FB accused of copying Calibra logo from online bank

first_imgSan Francisco: Social networking giant Facebook has been accused of using a logo for its new cryptocurrency play, similar to the logo of an online banking company called ‘Current’. Earlier this week, Facebook announced its own global digital coin called ‘Libra’, to be managed by a governing body called the Libra Association. Calibra is the name of the subsidiary that would run the wallet. According to the CEO of Current, Stuart Sopp, the logo for Calibra is similar to Current’s logo, CNET reported on Thursday.

The online banking company tweeted a picture of both the logos in one frame and captioned the post: “This is what happens when you only have one crayon left.” According to the media reports, Current is a consulting law firm Goodwin Procter to decide whether it has a trademark or patent infringement case against the social networking giant.last_img read more
