Nike is opposing Rob Gronkowski’s silhouette trademark application.
Notice any similarity?
No! Full disclosure: Nobody messes with my second favorite NFL player.
Gronk’s legs are relatively grounded and so is his left arm.
I knew you would appreciate it.
Since I’m on a roll today, let me just add that no one who knows a damn thing about sports should be comparing a football player’s silhouette with that of a basketball player.
Different game, different skillsets, different moves.
IP law annoys me sometimes. Patent trolls are the worst but trademarks and copyrights can be bad too.
I have had problems with the NFL every season with my stores; I’m beginning to despise that league due to the complications of trademarks particularly with my retro logos (Pats, Bears, Lions, Jets, etc.).
Nobody wants the new images and my vendors can’t afford the licensee fees for the vintage looks.
One of my best-selling NFL jerseys was the LA Rams before they moved back to LA! I used to sell a lot of jerseys with the numbers of these players:
Other than the two are silhouettes and selling product I don’t see a difference. Where is Ralph Lauren suing or being sued for the polo shot.
I do not see any similarity. Balderdash.
Whatever Liz says on the subject I endorse it.
Close the thread.
If this goes forward, it will be one of the greatest cases in history for the field of trademark survey taking. Each of the parties will have several of its own consumer surveys conducted and then counter-surveys to rebut the surveys taken by the other side.
It appears Gronk has failed to respond and thus defaulted.
