    Bleep you Joe Pa. As if a few notebooks with a logo that looks like yours is going to drain much-needed revenue out of Happy Valley.

    Hey, Penn State has to pick fights it can win anywhere it can get them.

    The elementary school should just hire Lloyd Carr as an attorney. Penn State would settle before that sure loss ever got to court.

    Trademark is a trademark. If you don't protect it, then what's the point in having a trademark?

    I hardly think an elementary school with a similar logo is going to cause much trouble for PSU, business-wise.

    Since when do grade schools have logos / nicknames?

    I love these lines:
    Great, now when people dig up the capsule in 2100 they will see the logo and will create throw-back gear and this fiasco will happen again.

    fluffier with a cap? seriously? Now when Smith Grade School kids kick their ass in red rover they will make fun of the cap.

    You know how many elementary schools, middle schools and high schools have logos that are ripoffs or major college or pro teams? 99 percent of them don't cause a stink because it really isn't a big deal. I guess it is to Penn State.

    Well, at least Penn State's legal team is more effective than its football team.

    Every single school in the nation has computers, and every single school in the nation has talented kids who could probably whip up some kind of school logo. Let them do it.

    If your high school (or grade school) can't come up with a logo, colors and fight song of its own, you're pretty piss-poor.

    I guess this is what we get for cutting funding for the arts.

    Gotta agree with Oz here. What kind of precedent does it set if you knowingly allow someone to infringe on your copyright? It doesn't matter who is using it. If you don't protect it, you'll lose it.

    My high school and grade school had their own colors, nicknames, fight songs and logos.

    In our HS conference, fight songs included Notre Dame (2), Wisconsin, Michigan and "There'll Be A Hot Time In The Old Town Tonight."

    WTF?? :D ::) :D
