Correct me if I am wrong but aren't they filing for "Penn State White Out"? Why would that matter to anyone who wasn't in Pennsylvania?

It wouldn't...but then you couldn't sell PSU White Out shirts and whatnot in good 'ol Downtown State College without the school getting some green...which is the point. Like you said, outside PA, who would care?

No. That would infringe. You can't even sell shirts in the school's colors that have no trademarks or wordmarks. If I were to set up shop in Iowa City selling yellow & black "ANN ARBOR IS A WHORE" and "BEAT STATE" shirts, I'd be slapped with an injunction and lawsuit so fast, it would be comical. You can't even imply a relationship to the school.

Right....so unless I'm not reading it correctly, how is what I said different from what you said? I can't sell anything PSU-related--logos, slogans, or even items w/ navy and white that relates to something having to do w/ PSU even without the words "Lions" or "Penn State" or whatever, unless I'm licensed to by the school--which is worth $$$ to them...
