Central Pennsylvania school district to change logo after complaint

Monday, March 17, 2014 | 6:26 p.m. CDT

BLOOMSBURG, Pa. — A central Pennsylvania school district is giving its tiger-head logo a face-lift after a complaint from MU that the feline face was too similar to its own image.

The (Bloomsburg) Press Enterprise says university officials sent a cease-and-desist letter to the Southern Columbia Area School District in November.

Superintendent Paul Caputo says the emblem is on the Columbia County district's marquee, the new gym floor and various booster and sports-affiliated websites and gear.

He says the two institutions have come to an agreement under which Southern will tweak its logo enough that it's not infringing on MU's copyright.

The changes will be phased in slowly instead of changing everything at once, though apparel will no longer be made with the emblem.
