Cascadia Cup TM dispute: Supporters have 'productive and respectful' meeting with MLS

Supporters groups from Seattle, Portland and Vancouver have conference call with MLS representatives but still feel they "well positioned" to protect trademark.

For the first time since the flap over the Cascadia Cup trademark first began, the supporters and league officials seem to have made at least some movement toward a resolution. Supporters groups from Seattle, Portland and Vancouver had a conference call with MLS officials on Tuesday, deeming it "productive and respectful."

At the same time, the Cascadia Cup Council didn't give any indication that it plans to back off its trademark application of "Cascadia Cup."

"The Cascadia Cup Council continues to believe that it is well positioned to represent the interests of the Cascadia Cup trademark and the supporters who created it," the group wrote in a press release.
