ACOG, USOC SUE FOUR SUPER SHOW VENDORS FOR LOGO USE
Published February 6, 1995
Four vendors at the Super Show received summons to appear as defendants in a federal copyright and trademark infringement lawsuit filed by ACOG and the USOC. ACOG filed the lawsuit Friday without knowing who they were suing, but ACOG and USOC attorneys told U.S. District Judge Marvin Shoob they "would name the alleged violators as they were identified over the weekend." ACOG members then spread out across the show and found four violators. Two vendors were selling soccer balls with interlocking Olympic rings, one was selling a glow-in-the-dark Olympic torch and one was selling travel bags labeled "Olympic," according to Bill Ferguson, ACOG Dir of Enforcement. ACOP Dir of Commun. Darby Coker: "If you wait to file the lawsuit after the show is over, people will have left and there will be no one to serve" (Bill Rankin, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 2/6).
