No points for originality

You’ll just have to judge for yourself on this one, an item which comes courtesy of Linux Lookup.

Did Microsoft — not exactly known for its innovation and originality, but known throughout professional circles for copying and usurping the work of others — copy the Ubunutu logo for its Microsoft Alumni Network (Note: graphic reduced to fit on this blog page)?

[Of course, according to someone who posted on the forum at Linux Lookup, apparently both are guilty of copying another logo, namely the Scripps Healthcare logo:

So, knowing our friends in Redmond, maybe the attorneys should sort this one out, no?]
