I.Am.Not.Surprised. #weworkedonacollegemobileapp

I don't get it. Why did the university shut them down?

We once got a nastygram from a school that shall not be named (but it starts with Penn and ends with State) demanding we shut down our app because we were infringing on their trademark and branding.

I wouldn't be surprised if their sports licensing department got involved. We received emails from major college agencies on behalf of the universities they represetnted.

But you know, college sports is no big deal to schools...?

For this specific case, I can imagine the school being upset a student is providing a service the school should be providing -- it's a slap in the face.

In universities, the PR people are in charge of the tech people.
