Whether we first saw their works as parents, as children, as animation buffs, or just soft-hearted grownup viewers, Mefites have been quick to view, love, praise, analyze, criticize and follow the output of our favorite animation studio, a little company that started in the early '90s and came from behind to revitalize American animation. I am of course referring to the company behind Tiny Robots, What's Up: Balloon to the Rescue, The Frog Prince, Little Princess School
, and The Little Panda Fighter
-- Video Brinquendo.

-- makers of "Shockingly Good Mac Software" and visually appealing marketing collateral (including their website
) -- have documented the various places their branding has been
honored flatteringly borrowed
ripped-off on the internets. My favorite is the site selling one of their original icons for $199, promising "exclusive ownership
." Is imitation really the sincerest form of flattery?

but to what end? Aren't they just shouting into the ether (I couldn't find any complaints with business replies)? There are some gems
though. Owned and run by Sagacity
who have several other .coms lined up.
On the Rip-off report they do get replies

I like this site
, but it looks an awful lot like this other site
. Have you no respect for the property of others, Stewart? Must you steal to make yourself feel good?

I found this site
linked from a mom-n-pop design shop's awards page. Not only has this company stolen the Point Survey's 5% graphic, they're also using the old C|net background. Very original.
