It appears that LTF Abandonware is using Abandonia's logo on their page (left part of the image, right next to "LTF" letters):



Do they have permission for this kind of thing?

Only if the creator gave them permission, otherwise they are in violation of the Copyright law.

IMO it's not any violation and they can have it. it would be if they used same colours and also the words ABANDONIA. and even then if they made it ABANDIYO it wouldnt' be in violation, cause at least two letters are different.

Unless this graphics is copyrighted/protected by the original author of space invaders. in which case abandonia would be in violation as well. but i very much doubt this kind of sign is copyrighter, cause there isn't wasn't much choice in graphics back then.

I'm not 100% sure, but if I recall well, Tom Henrik made it.

Abandonware France? Didn't know that site was up again. As for the logo, I don't think that could be called a theft, as long as we assume that Abandonia hasn't also stole it from Space Invaders.
