Enforcement

Southeastern Oklahoma State University licenses its trademarks, monitors their use and takes appropriate legal action with respect to infringements of its trademarks because failure to challenge infringements can result in the loss of rights in the trademarks.

A single improper use of a trademark does not invalidate the trademark, but repeated improper use or a pattern of inattention to proper usage can be most damaging. Southeastern Oklahoma State University takes the protection of its name and trademarks very seriously. Along with Learfield Licensing Partners, Southeastern Oklahoma State University will use every means within the law to vigorously pursue any infringement of our trademark rights.

Any suspected misuse or unlicensed use of the University’s name or trademarks should be reported immediately to the Southeastern Oklahoma State University Department of University Marketing at (580) 745-2759. Every time you buy an officially licensed Southeastern Oklahoma State University product, the manufacturer returns a portion of that money to the University.
