LogoMaid steals logo from SimpleBits is a chop shop for cheap, non-original logos. Most buyers wouldn't know that, of course. There are lots of these kinds of sites out there, offering readymade websites, Flash sites, templates, blog templates, logos, etc. They hire contract designers who work from home on the cheap, form all over the world, and these contractors are not necessarily very professional. They tend to take "inspiration" a little too far.

Dan Cederholm is one my favorite designers, and he's extremely well-known and -respected in the industry. He also happens to be the author of "Bulletproof Web Design," which I have recommended to many people.

Dan posted the offending LogoMaid logo on this flickr page and a long discussion has ensued between the appalled design community and a supposed representative of LogoMaid.
