    Default Clones:Logo or no logo?

    If you had to choose a logoless clone vs a clone with logos what would you choose?

    Neither. Mech mods are a crazy waste of money.

    I do not think they should use the logo. Making the mod or atty look and work the same is one thing. Making it look exactly the same is totally another. Take this from someone who paid over $100. for a very suspect KFL...

    Logo defiantly and not for style reasons, but mods should be branded, why you ask?

    Answer: So they can be judged, I can create any crap quality mod and stick it out there unbranded with no logo, people buy that mod report on here and other simular places or youtube that its crap and who cares I just use the same crap parts next time and resell with a slight difference in style and ist still crap and the same people buy it again not realising my brandless product with no logo is the same crap they tried last time and I am still getting rid of it.

    Giving it a logo give is a brand, now if its crap I know to reject that brand, where as decent brands can build up good reputations and mark there products with there logo with there reputations on the line.

    That's the problem. They copy the exact logo of the authentic. No way to know unless you see obvious differences.

    I like them with the logo. I do think however they should not use the actual brand name of the maker. The "BY" or "MODDERS" name.

    If you put someone else's Logo on a product that You make, Isn't that kinda the Definition of a Knock-Off?

    No logo - Clone

    Clone with logo - counterfeit

    Very simplified that though. I mean really, how many ways can one really make a metal tube before similarities crop up? Or even a box mod?
    Now when you copy everything right down to the logo and sell half the price or less... counterfeit (and that goes for mechs and vv/vw).
