Although I agree with your post I can't help but think about the fact that
1) people don't have to participate in the contest and give their ideas for free
2) there is no law against saving money by trying to get stuff for free (which they are not, there is a prize package)
And on another note, it is my understanding that when hiring someone to design your logo it
1) is not cheap
2) you are very limited to choices and number of redesigns (which makes sense from the point of the designer but what about the customer who just does not like the design the designer is presenting?)
so doing this contest is probably a very smart business decision. Who are we to
boycott a business for being smart? Sounds kinda like jealousy to me...
Hope I didn't offend anybody here (for that is not my intention) but this is my opinion...
