Collegiate Licensed Product Label Information

The Ohio State University is an Independent Licensing Program which means that the program is managed through an internal licensing office at The Ohio State University. Ohio State is a member of the Collegiate Licensed Properties Association (CLPA). CLPA is a non-profit organization made up of colleges and universities who manage their own licensing program, or partner with the Licensing Resource Group (LRG) for trademark management services.

These institutions have come together to create the CLPA Authentication Program, which is designed to protect legitimate licensees from unlicensed and counterfeit products. The CLP labels and hangtags are “Optically Variable Devices,” which combine several imaging techniques into a single image to create the high level of security found in the CLP labels. Because of these security features, licensees are not allowed to print or produce their own CLP labels.
