The 2 logos are not exactly the same the "AS" in the middle are spaced differently and the curves are not exact the same.
I'm not an expert, but doesn't trademark law ignore slight "technical" differences in favor of common recognition? McDonald's has successfully sued and won all challenges to anyone using "Mc" in their name to denote low cost. Any trademark recognition confusion by relatively common standards can trigger an injunction for use. In fact lack of legal action erodes trademark enforceability.

this is what can happen when using the same 'font' type
and by coincidence you decide to use same logo name.
They also both used a blue color, but not the same shade.
Two blue but with a distinct difference.

As these both companies are in different trades, this is no big issue. And there is not much reason for someone start processing.


I do not know what this specific font is called
The closest match I found so far, is the font Stop.
Try and download STOP.ttf font

If you look at the logo I made with this font
you see the P has a bigger gap, in the passlabs original logo.

If both used font from such a freeware domain, I don't think
there is any issue?

Well, actually I downloaded this font from another site.
Somebody Alan Carr has submitted:
http://www.fontspace.com/alan-carr/stop

The original might be from here .. where you can buy it for expensive money:
http://www.linotype.com/1505/stop-family.html

There are many sites where we can download this same font file: Stop.ttf
... and install it in C:\Windows\Fonts

If you ask nicely, Nelson will send you a sticker that reads something like "Pass-DIY".

They are real nice, and so are the Pass people, so that could be an option.
