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.''

"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.
And Tebow isn't the first athlete to "Tebow." It's just recognized by him more because of his beliefs and his celebrity. He's making a name for himself and it might lead to money like the Jordan brand. I don't blame him for thinking about how he's gonna make a living off the field potentially.

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.
How good you are at your job doesn't have anything to do with Intellectual Property. The fact of the matter is that mark strongly represents Tebow now...and I would argue it wasn't him that marketed himself at first...it was all the religious freaks that actually think God helped him win football games and blew this thing WAY overboard.

Once it got to that point, though, the brand (which in this case, is him personally) has to be protected. Simple as that.

So you're saying we shouldn't be blaming Tebow, but the lunatic supporters he has?

Here's my beef with Tebow. He should just come out and deny that his "trademark" isn't specific only to him. He shouldn't care if his fans do whatever, they aren't his responsibility. He should only go about things as he sees fit. If people want to make fun of him "Tebowing", then that's their call.

Hey wait a minute, didn't Epyx trademark Jumpman? It was a commodore 64 game. MJ must now pay royalties to them.
