Man registered infringing Penn State domain names after being sued, university says

WILLIAMSPORT — The 80-year-old owner of Sports Beer Brewing Co. reportedly has registered website domain names containing “Penn State” as the university’s trademark infringement suit against him winds through federal court.

In a filing Monday in U.S. Middle District Court the university identifies the new sites as “pennstatenittany.beer” and “pennstatehappyvalleybeer.com.”

Paul L. Parshall of Naples, Fla., contends he has obtained trademarks that give him the right sell beer, cigars and other items using the names of numerous professional and college teams.

Penn State last year filed suit when he claimed he owned the trademarks for Penn State Nittany Beer, Penn State Nittany Brewing and Penn State Nittany Cigars.

Parshall, who is representing himself, contends the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted him a registration mark for Penn State Nittany Beer but the university says his application was rejected.

Penn State’s suit seeks an injunction to stop the alleged trademark infringement
