Update to Trademark Issue

by Dave B. in


For the latest news regarding the ongoing negotiations over trademark law between MLB and the Cape League, check out Rob Duca's story in today's Cape Cod Times:   http://www.capecodonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20081031/SPORTS/81030019 For people who have been following this issue, there isn't much new information here; but it seems the end of the story is near - for now. The issue may resurface each year for the four teams who have chosen to keep their nicknames. The agreement states that those teams - the Mets, Red Sox, Mariners and Braves -  will have to notify MLB by September 1 of each year as to whether they intend to keep those nicknames for the following season or make a change.
