BlueClaws vs BlueCrabs

Post by ACsurfan » Mon Jan 28, 2008 2:19 pm

Interesting how close the new Southern Maryland BlueCrabs (Atlantic League) logo resembles the Lakewood BlueClaws logo. Wonder if Lakewood should be considering a trademark infringement action?

Not only are the logos substantially similar but so are the names...

I think it's a coincidence, and certainly not worthy of legal action.

They can only consider trademark infringement action if the logo of Lakewood BlueClaws have the exclusive rights because the trademark that is not registered cannot have exclusive rights and thus cannot be infringed. But if the the case is otherwise, then the infringement can also happen even if there a confusing similarity, although the logo design being similar was not intentional i suppose.
