Vegas Hockey Trademark Rejected

Las Vegas NHL Hockey Team Trademark

Bill Foley, the owner fo the Vegas NHL team, kept saying the reason he was delaying releasing the name of the team was that he had to cross all the “T’s” and dot all the” i’s” to make sure he owned the name he wanted.  Looks like he forgot to cross the one important “T”.  That would be the Trademark office!

According to news reports, the Vegas Golden Knights’ trademark request was denied by the United States Patent and Trademark Office on Wednesday because of a “likelihood of confusion”  with another trademark.  The College of Saint Rose is a school  in Albany, New York, uses the Golden Knights nickname as well.

The name and the logo has been in dispute with fans and foes alike since it was first unveiled in a ceremony on November 22.  Many saying it’s not what they expected for a Las Vegas professional sports team.  A town built on excitement, flash and neon deserves a name & logo that befits that image. Not one that looks like it belongs with the Knights of the Roundtable!!

The “Vegas GoldenKnights” or whatever they end up being named, begin play in the 2017/2018 Season and will play their home games at the T-Mobile Arena(That we do know is true!)
