The US Polo Association and Ralph Lauren have been fighting since 1984 over logos using the word POLO and depicting horses. The background of the this dispute is set out below in the Polo Association’s complaint in a new declaratory judgement action.
Noting the success of the Polo Association’s licensing program, I will be reaching out to the governing body of water polo, in the hopes of securing a license. I would like to update the logo, perhaps to include ponies (yes, that’s a Billy Wilder reference).

    Pigs get fat and hogs get slaughtered and I guess greedy horsemen sell glue instead of perfume. Good luck with the water polo association, I’m sure there is gold in them there pools
