True, but changing the little checks to little middle finger bullets would have been a much more elegant method of retaliation.

What if Curebit had an important demo/presentation that was botched as a result of this? I think the response should be tailored to provide them with a learning opportunity rather than to hurt their startup. A private naming/shaming like betageek suggested would probably do the trick.

Surely that is the risk they took when using content that they have no control over.

If the demo/presentation is that important, then it would be wise to remove that risk by using their own design and their own images.
