Oregon, Iowa School District Resolving 'O' Dispute

January 3, 2014, 12:16 PM

OKOBOJI, IA -

The University of Oregon and an Iowa school district are resolving a trademark dispute sparked by the use of a Nike-designed "O'' emblem.

The Eugene, Ore., university has relented in its insistence that Okoboji schools stop using the logo within a year.

Oregon contacted the district in December 2012 after becoming aware that Okoboji's maroon "O'' looked nearly identical to the university's "O," which was designed by shoe and apparel company Nike. The Oregon "O'' has gained national recognition as the Ducks have built a football powerhouse known for its flashy uniforms.

Okoboji has unveiled a new logo featuring a bearded pioneer wearing a raccoon-skin hat. Superintendent Gary Janssen says the district will replace the "O'' on uniforms and elsewhere over five years.
