Wednesday, SportsLogos.net’s Chris Creamer reported that the US Army had officially filed a notice of opposition to the Vegas Golden Knights trademark. Due to this, the team was given 40 days to respond or risk losing their #brand.

The organization’s full response was as follows:
In the Patent and Trademark Office, the US Army filed its opposition to the Vegas Golden Knights’ applications to register the trademark VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS used in connection with the sport of hockey. We strongly dispute the Army’s allegations that confusion is likely between the Army Golden Knights parachute team and the Vegas Golden Knights major-league hockey team. Indeed, the two entities have been coexisting without any issues for over a year (along with several other Golden Knights trademark owners) and we are not aware of a single complaint from anyone attending our games that they were expecting to see the parachute team and not a professional hockey game. That said, in light of the pending trademark opposition proceedings, we will have no further comment at this time and will address the the Army’s opposition in the relevant legal forums.
Can I get some directions to the latest burn center or maybe just some aloe vera?
The saddest part of this story is that there will be “no further comment at this time and we’ll address the Army’s opposition in the relevant legal forums.”
