TEXAS SOUTHERN UNIVERSITY TRADEMARKS



WHAT IS A TEXAS SOUTHERN UNIVERSITY TRADEMARK?

A trademark is any word, name, symbol or device, or any combination thereof, used to identify or distinguish the source of a good from those of others. Texas Southern University owns and protects multiple trademarks including, without limitation, its name, logos, colors, slogans, mascot and other indicia.

The unauthorized use of the University’s protected marks in a manner that is likely to lead to consumer confusion as to source, affiliation, sponsorship, endorsement, approval, etc. or likely to dilute the strength of the University’s mark may violate the University’s trademark rights and may give rise to various causes of action under federal and state law. Use of the University’s protected marks without permission from the University or its authorized trademark licensing representative, Learfield Licensing Partner, may subject you to criminal and/or civil penalties.

Permission to produce or use Texas Southern University’s trademarks must be obtained from the University or its authorized trademark licensing representative, Learfield Licensing Partner.
