They may look the same but they do not mean the same thing, This is from Sharper Image right? Sharper Image is an Art company, Home is a program based on communitive fun, do the math

Lol, I doubt it would be a big company like Sony. They've been working on Home for a long time, and I have a feeling the Sharper Image icon copied Home's.

Do you sit there all day looking for something similar to what Sony has come up with to criticize them.

Wait, Wait, Wait...
Are you saying every kindergartner in the world is in violation by posting a picture of a House they drew on there fridgerator?
And every school is in violation for selling that 'artwork' in there year books?
 
I'm pretty sure you can't copyright, or sue for copyright infringment on a universally known symbol.

You know you can copyright likenesses too...
 
I'll put it to you like this: a long time ago (3-5 years) there was a wrestler on an independent circuit with the same design as Kane when he first debuted in wrestling except the color was blue, not red. Of course Vince Mcmahon was filing paperwork to sue him BONE dry until they came to an out of court settlement. One thing doesn't have to match, but if the company was smart to copyright all likenesses then big ups to them.
 
The part of the design that sits "inside" the house disqualified it from being a universally drawn symbol. PS3's home symbol has that part of the design "outside" of the house and is much shorter.

It would be bad publicity anyway if Sony sued this company.

I can just see the nerd rage now.....
