It has been confirmed by Lyndon officials that a letter from lawyers representing Georgia Tech was sent asking for the logo to be dropped from use at Lyndon. The Lyndon State Hornet is similar to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket, which is a copyrighted image. Georgia Tech has been using their current Yellow Jacket since the early 1970's, several decades longer than Lyndon has used the hornet. [...]
The letter was sent after an inquiry by The Critic asking Georgia Tech if the logo was copyrighted.
The Lyndon journos busted their own school! Good work!
A Lyndon official said the college thought the hornet was a clip art piece when the logo was adopted by LSC.
The processes of phasing out the logo will be a lengthy and potentially pricey project. The hornet is currently on athletic uniforms, SGA logos, tee shirts, the athletic website, school promotion tools and many other pieces of memorabilia throughout campus.
This means that Lyndon State will most likely crumble into ruins and everyone will starve. Thanks a lot, Tech.
Kind of hilarious: Lyndon was recently contacted by Landmark College, a private school that serves students with learning disabilities, because it used a similar-looking shield on its logo. The story about that dispute, which has since been resolved, was written by the same journalist who penned the above piece. On the same day.
Mo gibs muh 'dat.
