Don't use ATP/WTA trademarks nor ATP/WTA logos

Postby manutoo » 18 May 2019, 11:02

Hello,

the ATP/WTA lawyer contacted me lately as the ATP & WTA don't wish to see their trademarks nor their logos used in your free Mods, and they took down many videos on Youtube where their logos were visible.

Their lawyer asked me to publish this statement :
1. ATTENTION ALL GAMERS: The WTA word trademark, WTA logos and WTA copyrights (hereinafter referred to as “WTA Intellectual Property”) are the property of WTA Tour, Inc. and should not be used in any video games and/or video game Mods without written permission from WTA Tour. Any unauthorized use of WTA Intellectual Property may violate trademark, copyright and other laws and is strictly prohibited.

2. ATTENTION ALL GAMERS: The ATP word trademark, ATP logos and ATP copyrights (hereinafter referred to as “ATP Intellectual Property”) are the property of ATP Tour, Inc. and should not be used in any video games and/or video game Mods without written permission from ATP Tour. Any unauthorized use of ATP Intellectual Property may violate trademark, copyright and other laws and is strictly prohibited.


I asked her if the ATP or WTA would actually give the written permission to you to use their IP in their free Mods, and she answered that "WTA and ATP do not wish to give such permission at this point in time", so there's no need to try to ask them.

Moreover, you can't create your own ATP/WTA logos either. You should create new logos without the ATP/WTA words in them.

And again, if you have a Youtube channel you might have some issue if you feature a video showing any ATP/WTA logo.

So if you have any screenshots with such material, please remove them from your posts.
