Adidas, a manufacturer of sportswear and footwear, accused the Black Lives Matter Foundation of stealing the company’s trademark – three black stripes.

The company has filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to have the BLM Fund’s trademark canceled, arguing that the similarity of the logos could be misleading to consumers.

“Most likely, consumers who have long been familiar with goods and services will fall. Adidas with its three stripes brand is a faux pas and they will think that the products and services provided by the Black Lives Matter Fund are identical to what Adidas offers.”

The German company stressed that it has been using the three lines since 1952 to develop manufactured products that are sold worldwide, including in the US, and that it has spent a lot of money promoting the brand.

Adidas’ complaint comes in response to an attempt by the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation to trademark the three yellow stripes on sportswear.
