Submission + - eBay 'scammer' animations imply linux = scammer OS

inflex writes: "While going through some eBay pages today it was noticed that eBay has an anti-scammer / dunk-the-scammer flash animation showing a Witch 'zapping' an evil glasses-wearing scammer on a laptop. The laptop itself is adorned with two stickers, one saying "Phishing since '02" and the other is a small 'tux' logo.

Is there any law against this? The tux logo is strongly associated with Linux. Why isn't there any other OS logo, or more importantly, why was the tux put there in the first place! (I'd be curious to see how long the use of OS X, Windows or Solaris logos would have lasted)."
