We were surprised and disappointed this week to see our logo being used in the rebranding of audio headset maker Plantronics to the newly named “Poly” after their acquisition of Polycom. Our PDP Gaming logo mark, a vortex shape that incorporates the letters in our acronym “P-D-P,” has been in development since March 2018 and we started using it publicly in marketing materials and on product packaging in October 2018. PDP is committed to protecting its brand and preventing consumer confusion. Poly’s logo appears to be a copy of the PDP Gaming logo:
We filed a formal complaint of trademark infringement in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California yesterday in order to stop Poly’s use of our PDP Gaming logo.
