More than seven months after the Army filed a notice of opposition with the U.S. Patent and against the Vegas Golden Knights, the long trademark battle has finally come to its conclusion, the NHL team announced on July 19.

According to the Las Vegas Sun, the two sides have come to a trademark coexistence agreement over the usage of the name and mark “Golden Knights.”

The Golden Knights are the Army’s parachute exhibition team, and the Army will continue to use the Golden Knights name.

“We are pleased that we have agreed to coexist regarding the use of the ‘Golden Knights’ mark and name,” Vegas Golden Knights Chairman and CEO Bill Foley said in a statement. “Our discussions with the Army were collaborative and productive throughout this entire process.”

The Army’s Golden Knights program goes back to 1959, when 19 airborne soldiers made up the Strategic Army Command parachute team with the intention of competing in the new sport of skydiving against the then-Soviet Union, according to the Army.

Three years later, the team was renamed the Golden Knights, with golden signifying the color of the medals they won and knights referring to the “team’s ambition to conquer the skies.”

The team has earned the Army 2,148 gold, 1,117 silver and 693 bronze medals in national and international competitions.

At the time of filing the notice of opposition. the service believed that the public was likely to perceive the Army as being affiliated with the NHL team and that the Army believed it would be damaged if the NHL team was allowed to trademark the name.


Hmmm, I see.

The university's first mascot was the Citronaut, which was designed by Norman Van Meter, the brother-in-law of FTU's then-president Charles N. Millican. The Citronaut made an official appearance on a university publication, the cover of the 1968–69 student handbook. The sports teams were originally known as the "Knights of the Pegasus" – UCF's first official mascot – beginning with their first intercollegiate competitions in 1970.

The moniker was switched to "Golden Knights" in 1993 as a solution to poor merchandise sales. The mascot of the athletic teams is Knightro, a black knight with gold armor. The university has asked to be identified as UCF when being referenced as opposed to Central Florida. Television networks and other media outlets, most notably ESPN, have been slow to adopt this policy.

In 2007, UCF made major changes to its athletic program. A new "athletic village" on the north end of campus known as Knights Plaza was developed. It included new sports facilities such as the new CFE Arena connected to the existing Venue at UCF and a new 45,000 seat football stadium known as Spectrum Stadium, a new softball complex, and the only Division I indoor football practice facility in the state. This made UCF the first school to ever open a new stadium and arena at the same time, for the 2007-08 season.

It also includes Jay Bergman Field and UCF Soccer and Track Stadium. The area was built in a downtown style with four towers of student housing including approximately 1000 beds, retail and restaurant areas, and a new pedestrian mall connecting the front of the new arena to the student union. To mark the start of the new era, the teams names were reverted to "Knights" from the "Golden Knights" on May 4, 2007. In addition, new logos and uniforms were unveiled for all of UCF's athletic programs.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
