Trademark Protection

Required Use of Trademark

All purchases, including purchases made with a Pcard, that include an MSU trademark (i.e., trademark, mark, logo, insignia, seal design, slogan, or other symbol or device associated with or referring to the university), require the merchant be licensed through the University Licensing Programs office.

If your purchase requires the use of an MSU trademark, please view the comprehensive list of current university licensees at www.licensing.msu.edu. University Licensing Programs actively enforces the ownership of its marks, name, and symbols not only to protect its property, but to protect licensees from unfair competition.
