It has come to our notice that a third party website is selling University logos at a premium price, for which it does not even hold the rights!
For example, the University of Birmingham logo in vector format is available from here for $8.00. The site sells many other digital items, not just university logos.
Pycomall.com describes itself as “new media development firm Pycotech Pte Ltd specializing in providing solutions for merchants and the community of developers. Founded in 2006 as a web development company has grown to become one of the forefront developers utilizing Macromedia development products.”
Essentially, it sells digital content, well technically, it is a platform for users to sell content. Similar to Amazon, Ebay or Etsy, except it only sells digital content.
I am sure universities don’t sell their logos at this site. One reason for that is because the image provider is ‘Victors’. Now, unless there is a conspiracy by universities to raise funds under the name ‘Victors’, this is fraud!
University logos are not usually sold. If you want to use a logo, search the university site and logo in the resources.
A quick search for the keyword University on the mentioned website shows up 113 results! With lots of universities from the UK, US and Australia.
See if your university logo is being sold on the site and we advise you to write to Pycomall.com and request that the image is taken down.
If ‘Victors’ is reading this post, then “dude/dudette, good idea, but unfortunately for you, we write about education and are one of the first blogs to track university news”. Our resource showed your deed and we had to inform our audience.
Was your university logo being sold or did you write to Pycomall.com and get the image removed? Share your view/feedback on this story in the comments section below.
