WWE has taken steps to protect its brand ahead of WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans against bootleggers, according to a TMZ report.
The company recently filed court documents to prevent makers selling unauthorized WWE merchandise which increases hugely around the time of their biggest event of the year. Bootleggers are often found outside arenas selling their posters, masks, and t-shirts bearing WWE trademarks.
The concern also extends beyond protecting their copyrighted property to include health and safety, with the company concerned the unauthorized material used for masks and t-shirt may not be flameproof.
Interestingly, in the court document an image of what appears to be the design for the new 205 Live Tag Team titles appeared.
