    Just remembered, another So Miss tie to Iowa

    This one from the lesser school over here to the east. Saw the SMU logo, remembered this:

    Patent office tells Southern Miss its logo too similar to Iowa’s | Hawk Central

    Apparently they won the battle, looks like they're still using the logo.

    Sounds like they are going to use it with their university name to get around the issue:

    Always thought this was ridiculous. Does Iowa have the market cornered on stupid looking birds?

    Not a patent and trademark lawyer but I work with one regularly. I don't think they really ever had a chance with this.

    The school's nickname is Golden Eagles, it's a golden eagle. I've seen much more obvious copying of trademarks hold up to legal tests. There probably is some influence and if I made these laws as a designer myself I'd probably rule for Iowa, but seeing what actually happens they had no chance.
