Hi Jon, Re your question about collegiate licensing: I can only speak
for Kansas State University. They are very protective of their
logos and name. Shows within Kansas will be randomly visited and
screened for unlicensed use. I don't know what penalty is applied.
Becoming licensed is not too difficult or costly. A person wanting
to use the university's name, logo, etc. would address a letter to
the Office for Institutional Advancement. They will want a
description of the item that will be produced, its wholesale price,
and an estimate of year's total wholesale proceeds. The office
calculates a royalty payment for a year to be paid in advance. It's
pretty much on the honor system thereafter so far as paying
royalties beyond the amount estimated.
If someone from out of state wants to use logos, they should
contact the Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC) at 770-956-0520. The
CLC will have appropriate for each school.
Hope that helps, Judy in Kansas where spring has turned into summer
