LOWER SCHOOL MERCHANDISING BOOMING

Evidently, Conway Elementary School down near Fredericksburg, VA is getting filthy rich selling logoed merchandise. Not so fast, Conway…

According to lawyers for Penn State, the Cougars logo is infringing on the intellectual property rights of PSU, and must be removed from all t-shirts, school binders and backpacks. Next thing you know, their attorneys will go into the woods to make sure that no actual lions are sitting around in that copyrighted pose. Don’t tell them we don’t have Nittany Lions, or any other kind for that matter, down along the I95 corridor 50 miles south of the Nation’s Capital.

After all, we can't have a rogue elementary school siphoning off Penn State revenue, now can we? The Collegiate Licensing Company generously allowed Conway to keep two floor mats with the image, and the school will not have to dig up a time capsule stamped with the now-restricted logo.

If you look closely, you can see that they are TOTALLY different.

Nice, Penn State, NICE!
