I really think that you are overreacting. Cinephiliac's design as well as my 
mock-up are very different from FinalCut's icon. You are probably confusing 
something. A registered logo does not mean that every graphic containing a 
clapperboard suddenly becomes illegal. It has to closely resemble the 
registered logo, which neither does.

The only real issue is usability. To have an icon that looks very similar to 
the one from Kino is confusing. So a single black clapperboard is bad.
