Poly logo disputed by gaming company PDP

The newly branded Poly, the company formed from Plantronics and Polycom, is believed to be using Performance Designed Products LLC’s logo, according to a public statement released by PDP Gaming, a company within Performance Designed Products.

PDP stated “We were surprised and disappointed this week to see our logo being used in the rebranding of audio headset maker Plantronics to the newly named “Poly” after their acquisition of Polycom.”

Performance Designed Products LLC, a video game accessory company, filed a formal complaint of trademark infringement in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California on Friday, according to a public statement.

PDP’s logo had been in development since March 2018 and was used publicly in marketing materials and on product packaging starting in October 2018, according to the statement.

PDP has been shipping products with the branding since January.

Plantronics filed an “intent to use trademark” application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the logo on Feb. 28, 2019, according to the complaint.
