Iím not sure if itís worth the effort or if the administration will even care, but this athletic apparel business is making a ton of $$$ selling athletic gear using a very familiar trademarked athletic logo.

They were even advertising on Fox Sports during a UFC fight last night (Estimated viewers 4.7 million). :confused013:

Legal speak...Trademark Infringement may occur when one party, the "infringer", uses a trademark which is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark owned by another party, in relation to products or services which are identical or similar to the products or services which the registration covers. An owner of a trademark may commence civil legal proceedings against a party which infringes its registered trademark.

Again, Iím not sure if itís worth the effort or if the administration will even care.

Surf Report:
The surf is up. It looks to be running waist high with some bigger peaks. The wind is blowing out of the NE at 4-7 mph. High tide is at 8:16 this morning and low tide is at 8:08 this afternoon.

Eerily similar. Not sure if it's enough for a lawsuit, though. Not as bad as that school from Minnesota or wherever it was that had identical uni's. Haha

Oh, it's worth it, that could result in a ton of money, if the university actually sued them, IMO
