High School Teams Using NFL Logos.


I've seen this both in Texas and Louisiana.

For example, the Tatum Eagles, a 2A perennial football powerhouse in northeast Texas, use this logo:



I mean, that's the exact logo of the Philadelphia Eagles. Aren't those NFL logos copyrighted?

I would think as revenue and brand conscious as Goodell and the NFL suits are, that they'd be concerned about this and taking legal action.

Just something to muse about on a Sunday afternoon.

I believe the NFL allows use of its logos at the HS ranks for free. That's why it's so common for high schools to use NFL logos. There have been many discussion s about this on UniWatch over the years.

Oh okay.

I'm pleasantly surprised. That's a civic-minded thing to do.

I mean, considering the flap with Who Dat, when the NFL thought they owned it, I just figured a huge multi-billion dollar corporate entity would fanatically guard against use of their trademarks without compensation.

Colleges seem to be a lot more vigilant about making high schools stop using their logos.

Wisconsin in particular.

Happens all over the country. Sometimes with permission and sometimes without. A couple teams in the BR area got cease and desist letters from some college teams (St Amant and Florida)

A coach told me once the school didnt care but they just had to pay like a dollar a year so that the school could keep the copyright. Dont know how true it was but thats what i heard

Teams probably pay for the right to use the logo.

Plenty of teams also use the Packers "G"

My high school used Florida State's FS. I've heard of a college that made a high school quit using their "M". It was either a Michigan, Missouri, etc.
