Fairmont State University has teamed with the Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC) to license and oversee the use of its logos and trademarks in an effort to protect the integrity and usage of the marks. Manufacturers and retailers are expected to work directly with CLC when using Fairmont State University Logos.
Any company or person who produces any item using the Fairmont State University family of logos or the Falcon or using the name of "Fairmont State University" or "Fighting Falcons," must be a licensed vendor. These images and words are all trademarks of Fairmont State University.
If the end product is strictly for in-house campus use (such as donor thank-you items, shirts for coaches, award plaques for academic awards, etc.) then the royalty fee will be waived. The vendor still needs to fill out a One-time Exemption Licensing Form.
If the end product is to be sold, a royalty fee will be applied. All royalties that are collected come back to Fairmont State University for athletic scholarships.
The process of becoming a licensed vendor is fairly simple. Vendors should contact Peyton Scrivner at CLC and she will walk them through the process.
