Lafayette College’s trademark licensing program strives to promote, enhance, and elevate the image of the College by authorizing the use of our marks on high-quality, socially responsible, and tasteful merchandise and apparel. The program is administered by the Communications Division in partnership with the Licensing Resource Group (LRG).
Any person, organization or corporation wishing to manufacture a product bearing or containing any of the marks of the College, or to provide a service that will use the marks, must enter into a licensing agreement that authorizes such use. Examples of products include giveaways, apparel, uniforms, and sports equipment.
Any on-campus department wishing to produce a product bearing any of the marks of the College must use a licensed vendor with the assistance of Scott Morse, director of Athletic Communications & Promotions.
Only officially licensed, approved vendors (licensees) may produce items bearing the College’s trademarks or name. Those wishing to become licensed can obtain an application at www.lrgusa.com. Along with a completed application, vendors are required to submit product samples, proof of insurance, and a nominal fee.
Once a vendor is licensed, it can access current, accurate Lafayette logos and marks from Trademarx Online, LRG’s web-based artwork database. Product designs must be submitted into Trademarx Online for review and approval prior to being produced. Items bearing Lafayette’s trademarks without a license may be considered “counterfeit” and subject to all available legal remedies, including seizure of the items. Additionally, licensed vendors who fail to submit designs for pre-production approval may have their license revoked.
A list of Lafayette’s licensees is available by visiting the LRG licensee and products list, searching on Lafayette College, then choosing “view.”
