MLB Sues UD Over Trademark Infringement Violations

Major League Baseball has sued Upper Deck Co, accusing it of trademark infringement for using its logos on trading cards without permission. The lawsuit was filed six months after the sport awarded rival Topps Co a multi-year agreement to become its exclusive trading card maker. Topps has sold baseball cards s ince 1952. Upper Deck had no immediate comment on the lawsuit, which was filed in Manhattan federal court. The company is based in Carlsbad, California. In its complaint, Major League Baseball said Upper Deck has distributed unauthorized “Signature Stars” and “Ultimate Collection” lines of trading cards, and “is on the verge” of distributing several other unauthorized card lines.
