Why has the second letter "i" been removed in the logo? Stupid question but I've been wondering since I first saw it... any ideas?

I don't remember where I got this from but it was years ago and I wondered the same thing. It's like bootlegging Taste Our German Steel and calling the band Mooblood.

in my opinion, because the guy who did this bootleg thought that "MÜTIILATION" was a mispelled english form of "mutilation" so he removed the "i"

I always assumed it was some moron's way of not getting sued. Not that it would have worked.

That's what I believe too. Maybe this is the reason no bootleg is 100% identical to the original

I did some research and found that müti is an Azerbaijani word meaning obedient. Lation means "motion of a celestial object from one place to another; local motion."

There. He fixed it.
Müti Lation.

I knew what it was immediately:

If you take the Mutiilation logo (I used the one from Metal Archives), open it in Photoshop, and use the magic wand to select all of the logo, the magic wand selects everything except the second "i."When using the magic wand, if you click on any color, or part of a logo, it will select everything that that part is touching. Well, if you look closely at their logo, that center "i" is not touching any other part of the logo... so if you do not pay attention closely, and select the logo, you have to ALSO select the "i" separately, and then paste in onto what ever you are working with. Look at my screenshot to see what I'm talking about. With one click from the magic wand, you get everything BUT the second "i."

So, it's obviously just shoddy photoshop/design work. How someone didn't catch it in prepress is beyond me.

But apparently he did remember to include the umlaut dots, the sloppy motherfucker. All he had to do to finish was hold shift and click the non-selected letter I to add to the original selection. Or just select all whites, or blacks and then reverse it. Or not make silly bootlegs.
