AMARILLO, TX – Copyright and trademark laws are in place for a reason, so others can’t steal an idea and pass it off as their own.

Most of the time company’s check to make sure their product is unique before releasing it to the public, but it looks like someone forgot to tell that to the City of Amarillo.

It recently unveiled its new logo, but it didn’t take long for some to notice that it looked a little too much like the logo for Emaar Properties, a Dubai real estate marketing company.

According to the City’s website, the similarity was an accident and city leaders have reached out to Emaar to figure out what to do next.
