Death, where is thy sting?

How dickish is Georgia Tech?  This dickish:

The Atlanta-based university so zealously protects the trademark integrity of its own mascot, a yellow jacket named Buzz, that alumni must fill out a “grave marker permission form” before the insect can join them in their eternal rest.

Geez, no wonder Tech has so much trouble recruiting.

    This is why I will never get tired of beating the North Avenue Trade School. Idiots.

    McGarity nods approvingly. Only, he’s going to monetize his trademarks.

    Question: If you don’t get those assholes permission in advance and put that insect on your tombstone, what exactly are they going to do to you?

    My favorite part of the permission form, you’re not allowed to print the logo in red or print their logo on a red item. Wonder why they put that in.

  7. I have to think UGA does the same. Alan Thomas is about as bad as it gets anywhere.

    It seems to me there are enough differences between the high school mascot and the one for yech…but who am I to say: I’m not expert in trademark law

    They have so few fans that they want to claim the ones that are dead. Purgatory would be bad enough as it is, but people knowing you are a Tech fan would make it even worst.

    I ‘beelieve’ Alabama already owns the trademark.

    Vince Dooley Stadium at historic Mark Richt Field.

    Wonder if that’s been trademarked

    The artist is a UGA graduate. He finally had to sell the rights back to them for not much money. #nerds

    How bad is this article? You know UGA is desperate since their football saviour turned out to be a dud just like the other SEC assistants that haven’t panned out. Have to talk about something other than football. Vols will be SEC east champs and uga will again be middle off the pack. You too can write riveting articles on WordPress if you are a UGA journalism grad.
