I previously wrote (link here) about the trademark infringement lawsuit by the Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System (the “UW”) against Washburn University (“Washburn”) over the latter’s use of a W logo (pictured below) which UW claimed infringed on its so-called Motion “W” registered trademark (pictured above). See Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System v. Washburn University, Case No. 3:2007cv00672 (W.D. Wis.).
According to news reports (here and here), the parties reached a settlement agreement whereby Washburn can continue to use its logo so long as the university’s name, mascot name, or mascot symbol is transposed on it. No money reportedly changed hands. Washburn officials also report that they are currently working on developing a new logo for the future.
