Detroit Red Wings To White Supremacists: Stop Using Our Logo

In addition to all the tragic, horrific acts occurring today in Charlottesville, Virginia, as a white supremacist rally turned deadly violent, the Detroit Red Wings logo got dragged into the fracas, and the Red Wings are mad.

Among the signs and flags used by the white supremacists today, some used a very slightly modified Detroit Red Wings logo.

And so is the National Hockey League.

The obvious problem is how to identify those who violated the Red Wings’ trademark and copyright. Suing will be easy, but whom to do you sue?

Violent Clashes Erupt at "Unite The Right" Rally In Charlottesville
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – AUGUST 12: Rescue workers and medics tend to many people who were injured when a car plowed through a crowd of anti-facist counter-demonstrators marching through the downtown shopping district August 12, 2017 in Charlottesville, Virginia. The car plowed through the crowed following the shutdown of the “Unite the Right” rally by police after white nationalists, neo-Nazis and members of the “alt-right” and counter-protesters clashed near Lee Park, where a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee is slated to be removed. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)
