Manitoba Moose Logo Rip-off

I saw this today on Campus:



It's pretty much an exact copy of the Moose logo but with Park City instead of Manitoba. Any copyright problems?

There's no way they didn't get permission for that.

I've always been curious about this since I see so many rec league teams that basically rip off logos as well and just change a word or something.

yea the thing with rec teams is that most of them dont have money so whats the point of suing them? even getting lawyers involved to order cease and desist are not worth it because it doesn't really damage the brand. (though i am sure wetcoaster will have something to say)

This though if they don't have permission could lead to a lawsuit again depending on how big this team is and if they have money to go after

Rec teams don't profit off of the use of the logo.

These guys seem to have a full schedule on there and I'm sure they are charging some kind of fee to watch them.

But there is no more moose, so it shouldn't be a problem

True North or the AHL likely still hold the rights to the Moose logo.

That's actually way more blatant given there is no team name or anything on it.

I often wonder about copyright. Here in the Calgary area I've seen a coring company with a black silhouette of 'Ash' from Army of Darkness except instead of a shotgun he has a coring hole saw for an arm;



a delivery company with the Wile E. Coyote for a logo;

and a plumbing company with the incredible Hulk but blue instead of green plastered all over their vans.

The Cowichan Valley Capitals, a junior team in the BCHL, has been ripping off the Washington Capitals' logos for years.

I dont know why people are too concerned about this. Its not like these teams sell merchandise and they have maybe a hundred fans at their games. If it weren't for the internet no one would know they even existed.

If the Flames didn't get sued by McDonald's for this atrocity then I think Park City is safe.

Ganja...ask the guy who owns Olympic Pizza (a one restaurant operation in Vancouver) what VANOC did to him? They basically forced him to change the name of his restaurant as their name was an infringment on the IOC.

Whoever owns the Moose logo can shut this down if they wish
