Think of how many similar back designs exist: JNugg style, Tally Ho circle back style, cut-off big circle style (e.g. Zenith) and so on...
It's easier to get pissed off when only 300 people back your project because your design is mediocre. It's less likely that Paul will get bothered by some amateur doing a half copy-job of Zenith because (I think) it's universally loved as a deck of playing cards.
It reminds me when Linus Omark did a spin-o-rama-fake-slapshot shootout goal in the NHL and the Tampa Bay Lightning cried about it to the media of "show-boating", but Pavel Datsyuk copies Omark's slo-mo layup against Chicago, and it's revered because of how universally entertaining and respected he is.
He's getting more "press" for crying out. More attention.
