Bayside Lose Bird Logo

Posted by: Drew Beringer (03/29/14)
This is just kind of bizarre - Bayside never trademarked its bird logo and some Mexico-based company took advantage of that and trademarked it for their company. So the band cannot use that logo anymore and have been developing a new logo in the meantime. You can hear front man Anthony Raneri explain the situation in the replies.

Would be happy to be wrong, but this must be legit. I remember from over a year ago when Anthony Instagram'd this logo via the company in Mexico stating that they were going to look into it. I can't find a link, but I don't think I'm making that up

LMAO... Dude in the black is just pissed as fuck looking the entire time (I have no idea the names of the members outside of Anthony).

Feel sorry for them though.... can't believe no label or anyone looked into whether or not it was trademarked already.

Can someone explain like I'm 5 what the difference between trademark and copyright laws are when it comes to a situation like this? I always assumed they would go hand in hand in a situation like this since they can clearly prove they've been using the logo forever.

I don't see why they can't do to the logo what fun. did to their name and just add a subtle difference to it

That's a total bummer.
Curious - does anyone with any law knowledge/background know if they have any grounds for a lawsuit on this?

Watch them reveal their "new" logo on April fools and it will just be the shittiest design ever. I definitely feel like this is a joke.

I don't know why the seriousness of the video is funny in a really awkward way to me. But yeah, that's really friggin lame to have happen.

Only odd thing is - why not get make sure you get a trademark when you inquire with the other company
