Really? This seems like a no-brainer.

It's a lose/lose situation: the guy gets publicity for his brand that won't exist anymore and PSU gets to remind people that it will attempt to stop copyright infringement, but not a child rapist.

Semi related. The only time I've used Twitter was to tell a musician that PSU was using one of his songs in their commercial - and the name of the song was "Kids On the Run", which seemed like a poor choice. They used it without permission.

Hypocrites.

I knew a guy who owned a company called "Acura" something. He got a cease and desist letter from Honda of America. He told his lawyer that he registered the trademark long before Honda registered Acura in the US. His lawyer told him three things: 1) I can fight it 2) You will pay me me a lot of money and we will lose so 3) Just change the name

I bet even Jack Nicholson, Tom Cruise, Kevin Bacon, Noah Wyle, Cuba Gooding Jr, and Demi Moore couldn't make a patent trial interesting.

Better money in the trademark.

I bet one could trademark Nittany Pedos, given that Nittany is an Algonquian word, and cannot be expressly owned, and Pedos is probably not taken.

One could open a flower shop, and just say, "look, when we registered it, it was over the phone, due to Covid, and they heard Pedos when we said Petals. We are not going through all that paperwork again.
And don't come crying to us when we start putting up billboards all over town"

I'm sure there might be a couple of child rape survivors who might be willing to take a business loss on paper while putting up billboards at all the traffic points where the blue and white come streaming in to tailgate. Especially if a nice millionaire (Who never donates to PSU) covered it.

The eventual damage would be done. Pictures all over the internet, that never go away.
You cannot whitewash or cover up a meme. And you know the university is spending millions in donations, tuition revenue, and merchandizing money into erasing their little "We knew they were farking kids in the ass, but said nothing because football" scandal, which was not a scandal, it was a crime, and a conspiracy to cover up a crime. Which is another crime, dawg.

B-b-b-but fans of other schools should just "get over it already."   Ped State fans (including some right here on Fark) said so.
