Charlotte Hornets Trademarks

The following list includes all pending trademark applications and active federal trademark registrations that are owned by the Charlotte Hornets.
Updated:
June 16, 2020

The Charlotte Hornets are a member of the National Basketball Association and play in the league’s Eastern Conference Southeast Division. The Hornets were created as an expansion team in Charlotte in 1988, but in 2002, the team relocated to New Orleans. In 2004, Charlotte got another expansion team, and since the Hornets name was already taken, the Charlotte Bobcats were created. The team was tasked with creating a new brand and filed a trademark for a side profile of a bobcat baring its teeth. While the team was the Bobcats, the team also got a new owner with a controlling interest – NBA Hall-of-Fame legend, Michael Jordan.

While the Charlotte Hornets were in New Orleans, they also relocated to Oklahoma for two seasons due to the damage caused by Hurricane Katrina. Fortunately for the Bobcats, when the Hornets changed ownership in 2012, the New Orleans team changed its name in 2013 to the New Orleans Pelicans, and the Charlotte Bobcats got to become the Charlotte Hornets once again.

At the time that Charlotte could reclaim its original name, the team filed for trademarks on “Buzz City,” a stylized H within a C, a silhouette of a hornet, and the teams official logo – a hornet with its wings outstretched and the name across its body. The team that had once held this name had a decade to plan what trademarks to file for if they ever got the Hornets back.

As with most NBA teams, the Charlotte Hornets are now the affiliate for the Hornets Venom GT, an NBA 2k team. The team filed for the trademark of an angular, front facing hornet, with the intent to sell merchandise, as well as for their team.
