#441635 flameshaw has it here.

if you copyright something you are forced to enforce to prove ownership. univ of wisc had to do it to waukee schools in ia.

it seems really douchey but you have to.

hopefully no other schools try and copy our stuck in the 90's/early 00's tribal eagle tattoo logo.

#442610 I hope Arizona feels better about themselves. Although this suit is brought by the Collegiate Liscensing Corporation. They have nothing better to do. At least we had the cajones to make our own bad decision :D

#442625 Yeah, I mean I can totally see where someone could get confused between the University of Arizona and Appomattox High School.
By ATrain
#443017 Its Appomattox County High School. You'll be hearing from their lawyers and PR people shortly since it'll be cheaper to fight you in court than the University of Arizona.

#575508 Recently I've been seeing Lamar University using an LU logo in red. I came across their athletic brand guide dated 2018:

https://www.lamar.edu/_files/documents/ ... Manual.pdf

I know we had a thing with Lipscomb using the LU logo several years ago and Liberty prevailed due to owning the trademark to LU. Can someone explain how Lamar is able to use LU at this point? Lamar's logo looks more like Liberty's than Lipscomb's did. I guess I feel like if we are going to defend the trademark that we should be consistent. Thoughts?

Let me look into it.

I never understood the Appomattox vs Arizona deal. Anyone who gets those two confused, isn't the sharpest tool in the shed.

#575514 It has nothing to do with knowing the difference between Appomattox and Arizona. If you have a trademark, you are required to defend it or you risk losing it.

Exactly. That's why the Lipscomb incident happened. It has everything to do with keeping the trademark. Why are we not going after Lamar for this?

#575523 Usually when I saw anything representing Lamar, I used to see Lamar in fine print with the logo above it. Liberty better look into it before this school sneaks up and steal it lol.

#575525 Here is ESPNs page. They certainly think the LU is Lamar's primary logo:

http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basket ... -cardinals

Foxsports page has the same:

https://www.foxsports.com/college-footb ... inals-team

Both are using the LU for their score ticker as is Google. I only noticed this because I kept seeing scores scroll across the screen for LU games and I was like "I didn't know we played Houston Baptist!" Then I realized it was Lamar.

#575684 When scrolling through espn to find LU's games without my glasses I have difficulty distinguishing between Lamar and LU.

I don't remember quite when it was, but a number of years ago this became a trend with a number of universities... they needed to go after other institutions "infringing" on their copyright/Trademark. Liberty had moved AWAY from "LU" because they didn't own the trademark... but then it was discovered that no one did. We promptly filed for it ourselves. It was a good move.
