Vegas Golden Knights resolve trademark dispute with US Army

LAS VEGAS (AP) The Vegas Golden Knights have resolved a trademark dispute with the U.S. Army over the NHL franchise’s name and gold and black colors.

The hockey team said in a statement Thursday that an agreement with the Army allows the team to continue using the ”Vegas Golden Knights” and ”Golden Knights” while the Army can keep using the ”Golden Knights” nickname and variations of it for its parachute exhibition team.

The Las Vegas team first unveiled the name and logo in 2016. The Army later filed a challenge to oppose the team’s trademark, saying its parachute team has been nicknamed the ”Golden Knights” since the 1960s.

Las Vegas team owner Bill Foley and U.S. Army Marketing and Research Group spokeswoman Alison Bettencourt said in separate statements that they were pleased they reached an amicable resolution.
