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.''

There's a big difference between the ability to force somebody to pay you royalties and a licensing deal.

You guys just want to hate so much you can't even accept logic and fact. It's a little pathetic.

What's even more pathetic is that we're wasting our time bickering about it. I've got apps to build and trademarks/patents to file.

No hate here buddy, just looking at it as logically as possible.

Again so maybe you will understand logic. Making money is making money.

"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.
In other words Tebow reserves the right to profit from it if he chooses.

And keep others from doing it in a manner he deems unseemly. Even though he didn't invent it and is a borderline NFL player who will be forgotten like a fart upon the summer breeze in a few years.

Let's get completely hypothetical here, and take a look at this...



Let's imagine that became a national craze and everybody was running around "Priesting" to the point where as soon as you saw a silhouette of that image or you heard the term Priesting people immediately associate it with Priest Holmes himself.
See that's part of the problem. "National crazes" are not necessary to protect. It serves no purpose. And it can't be effectively done anyway.

Only if somebody wants to use the mark so badly that they themselves will be profiting from it and share that in residual form with Tebow and co.

He cannot keep you from your prayers, and he cannot force you to pay him something if you happen to kneel the same way he does.

When people are using your name and image however they please, and the vast majority of the public associates that name and image with an exact person or corporation, that person/corp has every right to protect themselves from public confusion by protecting that mark. That's exactly what trademarks are for.

I deal with this stuff all the time, and I've spent thousands of dollars for attorney's to fight IP battles for me. I've learned a lot in the process. This is a pretty straight forward case.

If you're so bothered by it, you could always file a dispute with the Trademark and Patent office. It was officially granted on 10/9 and the public has 30 days from that time to dispute the validity of the trademark.

So, seriously. If you disagree, file a dispute and see if you can block him from completing his trademark application for good.
