Vienna J.O. Softball League Statement on Vienna Stars

Posted by VGSL on Jun 21 2018 at 05:31AM PDT

Vienna Virginia— June 21, 2018 — The Vienna J.O. Softball League (dba Vienna Girls Softball League; dba VGSL) formed and operated an embedded travel softball program for almost 40 years. This program has been known as the Vienna Stars or Stars Vienna, VA. VGSL allowed this program to be operated under a license utilizing the VGSL 501©(3) and VGSL federal tax ID for a number of years. It has come to our attention that there are attempts to take ownership of the Vienna Stars name and mark against the terms of the license.

Accordingly, effective immediately, VGSL has reluctantly rescinded all licenses and permission to use the Vienna Stars name and mark or any variation (such as Stars, Vienna, VA) after the close of the 2017-2018 season on July 31, 2018. As such, there will be no Vienna Stars (or other variation of that name/mark) for the 2018-2019 season.

Any questions about this matter should be directed to the VGSL attorneys, Samuel D. Littlepage or Nicole M. Meyer, of Dickinson Wright, Washington, D.C.
