CALGARY (660 NEWS) – Alberta’s Canadian Energy Centre is changing its logo, just one week after they launched.

The centre released a statement Thursday afternoon saying it is taking steps to replace the logo after learning the icon is used by another company.

A U.S.-based software giant says it was looking into whether Alberta’s new energy war room violated the company’s trademarked logo.

Progress Software Corp., based in the Greater Boston area, made the comment in a brief email statement and on Twitter after people on social media called attention to similarities in the two logos.

The $30 million energy centre was created to fight back against what the Alberta government deems “misinformation” against the energy industry.

660 NEWS has reached out to Progress Software for comment.
