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.''

Wow. So Tebow is trademarking how we pray? I guess I better inform my pastor tomorrow that we're only allowed to pray in certain ways and to consult with Tebow before doing so.

Again, that's not how this works. Learn something about IP law before crying over this sort of thing.

I'm not a Tebow fan, but to hate on him for this is completely ignorant.

If anyone doubted he's a fake and that he's just selling a brand, here you go.

Nobody in the history of sports has ever marketed themselves as well as Tebow, and the funny thing is that so many people buy into his shit.

Yeah, there's no hypocrisy at work here. None at all.

"IP", LOL.

I'm not sure what you're trying to say here. Hypocrisy? Laughing at IP (Intellectual Property). You've lost me.

To begin with, this is nothing but a glorified TD dance, it isn't an invention, it isn't unique to Tebow, it's a pop culture fad like planking. Utterly meaningless and without value. To call that IP is retarded. About the only thing I can say about it is that it will probably outlast his NFL career.

The hypocrisy of it is that this blissed-out Jesus freak IS trying to control whatever miniscule money is made off of it, so for you to tell me it isn't about money is straight up wrong.

Oh ok my bad.

Why would he want to trademark this besides people using it for bad? Or is it just that?

You obviously don't understand trademarks. Did you read my porno video example in my first response to this thread? That's the type of thing they're trying to protect and it's absolutely logical for them to do so.

Same with Jordan and his mark. Let's start another thread talking about how shitty Michael Jordan is for trademarking his brand and how he's money hungry.

Tebow sucks. He's a back up QB who's not even good enough to be a back up QB.

Tebow is popular only because of how he marketed himself. It's brilliant that a terrible NFL player can be the most popular player in the league.
