NEW SONICS LOGO HAS THE LICENSING COPS ON THE LOOKOUT
Published November 28, 1995
"The sports license police are again targeting the Seattle area," according to this morning's SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER, looking for counterfeiters capitalizing on the Sonics' logo change. Angelo Bruscas reports that the Coalition to Advance the Protection of Sports logos (CAPS), which represents the four major sports leagues, the Collegiate Licensing Co. and Starter, is working to inform fans in Seattle to be aware of the possibility of unlicensed merchandise. The Sonics were sixth in NBA licensed merchandise sales last year, and reported several cases of counterfeit merchandise production last year when the club played in Tacoma (SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER, 11/28).
