Records Show Starbucks Hasn't Yet Opposed Rollergirls' Logo

I hope I’m not jumping the gun here, but it looks like Starbucks Corp. isn’t opposing the Rat City Rollergirlsapplication to register its logo as a trademark after all.

In May, STL reported (among others) that Starbucks had filed for an extension of time to oppose the Seattle roller derby league’s application through July 16. That date has come and gone, and the Patent and Trademark Office’s database doesn’t indicate that Starbucks has opposed or sought another extension of time to do so.

Online media seemed pretty critical of Starbucks’ initial extension. Perhaps the company has backed off. Or settled with the ‘girls.

STL can only speculate.

Wow they are are really trying hard to hold onto something that is quickly going downhill... Honestly, I could never confuse the two and I don't really even think there is a likeness... Unless they are patenting circles and text on a circle path lol
