Logo plagiarism controversyEdit

In August-2013, Brazilian news portals reported that the competition logo had been plagiarized by a company named Telexfree[4][5][6][7][8] which became operational only in 2011, two years after Badminton World Federation (logo owner) and Taïo Design Consulting (logo creator) launched the official brand for 2010 BWF World Championships. Because of this issue, Telexfree have decided to execute a re-brand campaign[9] without giving any official explanations about the case or if there is any legal action moved by the logo owner.
