Adidas retracts opposition to Black Lives Matter three-stripe design

March 29, 2023

Sportswear maker Adidas AG (ADSGn.DE) on Wednesday reversed course 48 hours after asking the U.S. Trademark Office to reject a Black Lives Matter application for a trademark featuring three parallel stripes.

Adidas rescinded its opposition without prejudice, which means it could still challenge the trademark on the same grounds in future. Reuters
