Tebow trademarks kneeling on one knee and fake praying
 
http://sports.yahoo.com/news/jets-te...7810--nfl.html

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- Dropping to a knee like Tim Tebow might cost you now.
The New York Jets backup quarterback is trademarking ''Tebowing,'' the move in which he goes down on one knee and holds a clenched fist against his forehead while praying during games.
After Tebow led the Denver Broncos to a handful of fourth-quarter comeback victories last season, ''Tebowing'' swept the country - with actor Robert Downey Jr. even doing it at the Oscars.
Newsday first reported that the trademark was approved Oct. 9. Tebow says Friday he wasn't aware the trademark was official yet.
The devout Christian says his representatives filed on his behalf not for financial gain, but ''to just control how it's used, make sure it's used in the right way.''

How can they trademark something people have done WAY before he did?


I want to trademark something: Scratching my Balls.

Well, at least we won't be able to trademark the forward pass.

So does that mean I can trademark sitting on a toilet? I mean I have to make sure everyone is using it in the right way.

Well, there you have it. The golden boy is just as greedy as anyone else.

It's funny how so called religious people who are all about the hereafter justify their lust after money. Its okay Tebow , you can say you did it for money.
Hypocritical scum.

Trademarks aren't about money. It's not like a patent where people have to pay royalties. Nobody is going to have pay Tebow when they pray, and if you think that's what their attempt was here you're being ignorant.

"Tebowing" has indeed become a national thing that pretty much anybody who follows sports at all knows about. It's become a verb, and it's also become a brand, so to speak. What's the first thing you would think about if you saw a silhouette of a man kneeling and praying like that? Tebowing, right?

Well, that is a powerful thing, and if somebody were to create some sort of a logo out of that silhouette they could do damage to Tebow's brand. The trademark will allow them to legally tell somebody to stop using that mark.

For example, I'm sure Tebow and co. wouldn't like it very much of somebody made a gay porno video called Teblowing and used that silhouette on the cover of their DVD. The trademark would allow them to legally stop that sort of thing from happening because it could cause confusion in the market place.

They wouldn't have to pay him royalties, though. It's completely separate.
