In our February 2010 edition we reported on the ruling of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in University of South Carolina v. University of Southern California, a dispute over the schools’ respective “SC” logos. The circuit court affirmed the U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board’s refusal to register The University of South Carolina’s interlocking “SC” logo in connection with apparel, and agreed with the Board that there was a likelihood of confusion between South Carolina’s logo and the “SC” interlocking logo used by the University of Southern California that had previously been registered in connection with apparel and other products. In October, the U.S. Supreme Court denied South Carolina’s petition for review of that ruling.
