Thanks for the support, feedback and 100 favs!
This Update(10-12-15): I've added a LOT of stuff that I wasn't very detailed about, and I was actually mistaken in some of the things I've said, so there are a lot of changes to the entire thing's wording and definitions.

This also reminds me of the case when someone thought it was
fun to copy the Trademark Puma including their logo

But in this case, the whole concept was stolen
Puma could not laugh about it
End of story was - byebye 'Pudel'
