Should Paramount get pissed? Top Gun vs Top Gun.

US Navy Here's a case of "Logo inspiration" where it's obvious that they meant to do that, the company is after all named "Top Gun Entertainment".

Yes, just like that movie "Top Gun". An exactly like that U.S. Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor Course which is called "Top Gun".

I feel like ripping this logo one more time and launching "Top Gum" with minty zest!

Compare Logos inside. Looks like two minutes in photoshop to me.


Top Gun Entertainment above is clearly tipping their hat on both name and design to that iconic 80's movie with Tom Cruise.

...Which in turn borrows its name - or perhaps only popularized it - from the United States Navy Fighter Weapons School where "TOPGUN" is the code name and common name of the U.S. Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor Course.

Question is, who owns the trademark? Paramount films? US Navy? Or the late-comer Top Gun Entertainment?
