This is probably not how Facebook and the other project participants are Libra they had imagined the months before the debut of the cryptocurrency. In the past few days the abandonment of PayPal, Mastercard, Visa and other members of the Association has been registered. To throw further fuel on the fire is now Current, overseas startup operating in the area of debit cards, with a complaint that targets Calibra.
Libra: Calibrate and Current's logo
For those not aware of it, Calibra is the subsidiary of the social network in blue created specifically to get to work on the wallet that from next year (if promises will be kept) will allow users to manage their tokens. The object of the dispute is the logo, considered by Current too similar to its own, so much so that we have already written about the issue in recent months. Immediately after Libra's announcement, the company intervened with the tweet attached below, with an ironic and deliberately polemical tone.

The similarity is out of the question. It will be up to the judge to determine whether it is plagiarism or of an involuntary coincidence, condemning or exonerating the subsidiary of Facebook dall 'accusation that has been moved.
The responsibility could, however, be attributed not to the group of Mark Zuckerberg, but to Character, a study in San Francisco that as noted by the editors of Gizmodo he worked on designing both logos, one to three years apart. The company is named directly in the deposited document to file a complaint.
