Va­len­cia won’t use new bat logo

The Star Early Edition - - SPORT -

SPAN­ISH foot­ball club Va­len­cia say they will not use a new ver­sion of their bat logo that comic book maker DC Comics had op­posed for be­ing too sim­i­lar to their Bat­man sym­bol. Va­len­cia say they had ap­plied for a copy­right for a new de­sign of the bat that forms part of their crest, but they have since de­cided to dis­card it after DC Comics “pre­sented their op­po­si­tion to the re­quest.” The club say “there does not ex­ist a law­suit by DC Comics,” but the club no longer have “plans to use” the new de­sign.
