WCS Ordered To Stop Using Logo

For the past two to four years, Warsaw Community Schools has used a Tiger logo on its shirts, signs and other materials that it apparently had no legal right to use.

Recently, the school corporation received a cease-and-desist order from the Collegiate Licensing Company, Atlanta, Ga. The Tiger logo is a trademark developed and protected by the University of Missouri, and used on the main campus of UM in Columbia, Mo., according to WCS attorney Max Reed.

Reed said the order didn't say how the licensing agency found out Warsaw had been using the logo, but it wouldn't be hard to discover since Warsaw Schools uses it on its Internet site.
