News Starbucks Asks Rat City Rollergirls to Change Their Logo
posted by May 23 at 17:01 PMon
The Starbucks Coffee Company has asked the Rat City Rollergirls (RCR)—a Seattle based roller derby league—to modify their logo because of, according to Starbucks spokeswoman Stacey Krum, of concerns about a “very similar look and feel of the logo.”
Krum says Starbucks spoke with RCR reps two days ago, and Starbucks has asked for an extension on the trademark ruling. “Under trademark law, you need to be careful to protect your own trademark,” Krum says.
RCR did not respond to requests for comment. Krum says she expects the dispute to be wrapped up sometime in July.
