Report: MLB Considers Trademark Dispute With Overwatch League Over Logo Similarities
Andrei Mincov's commentary on the original article
It's easy to oppose someone's trademark. It's even easier to request for an extension of time to oppose someone's trademark. The real question here is, does MLB really think that the logos are confusingly similar or is it just an attempt to say, "We're watching you. Let's see if we can get our way because we're big and strong and you are not so much." While the idea behind logos is the same (a while outline of a player separating two contrasting colors of the background), the real question is, how likely is it that the public would be confused into believing that goods and services that come from Overwatch League and those that come from Major League Baseball come from the same source. I don't know much about baseball or Overwatch, but to me, it doesn't look like something a reasonable person would confuse.
