Navy Launches Blue Angels Licensing Program

March 27th, 2009

The U.S. Navy has taken steps to trademark the Blue Angels crest, logo, script design, aircraft paint scheme, and uniform design.

According to a letter from Joel Bouve, assistant legal counsel to the Chief of Naval Air Training, “Recent legislation permits the military service to retain licensing fees from trademark licenses to support Morale, Welfare and Recreation for the benefit of Navy service members. The license program also assists the services in preventing confusing or inappropriate use of its trademarks. The Chief of Naval Aviation Training may grant permission to use the marks provided the circumstances under which the mark is used do not reflect unfavorably on the U.S. Navy or its personnel.”

If you’re interested in applying for a license or permission to use the mark, contact Joel Bouve, phone 361-961-3510 or by e-mail at joel.bouve@navy.mil.
