The guy who came up with the Major League Baseball logo was asked what he thinks about the obvious fact that other sports have copied it without credit or payment.
JD: I think it’s great. Like they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I started something, and I didn’t even realize it!
UW: So you don’t resent it, like they’re stealing your ideas or anything?
JD: Not at all. They’re not stealing it — they’re carrying on the idea. I feel good about it.
