Do you think Joe-College.com’s T-shirt designs infringe upon the business trademark of Kansas University or harm the school’s image?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on July 10, 2008
“I would say no. I don’t see any Jayhawks or even any with KU on them. I live in Wichita and see plenty of shirts that are worse than those.”
“I don’t think they infringe on any of KU’s trademarks at all. Every university has someone making shirts like those. I don’t think it has any effect on the school’s image.”
“No, I don’t. It doesn’t harm the school’s image because it’s not officially licensed by the university. And they’re not using any images that are exclusively owned by the university, so I don’t see the problem.”
“As far as the image thing goes, I think they may have a point. A lot of those shirts are hardly school appropriate.”
