Look for the Label
All retail licensees are required to identify their products with the “Officially Licensed Collegiate Products” label. With this label, alumni, students, fans and supporters know they are buying a product of quality and authenticity that has been manufactured in accordance with University set standards.
At Boise State University, net revenues generated through the sale of licensed merchandise support the University’s general fund and athletic programs. Products that do not bear the label, but use the marks of Boise State University, may represent trademark infringement and can be reported to firstname.lastname@example.org.
