    No fair, stealing my joke and jazzing it up with a smiley!

    Its his legal team that did it and it is used to stop exploiting tebowing for money. Like using the image to sell shirts, mugs or even porn movies.

    I hope so since 100% of the proceeds would go to building hospitals for sick kids. When is the last time you donated anything for sick kids?

    I guess that's why he makes you guys uncomfortable.

    its about people using exploiting and using tebowing to make money ...what do you think Cory is going to charge people $1 every time they do it?

    Give me a break man.

    Why don't you look up how much of his personal money he has given to sick kids and hospitals next time and judge him then.

    Then he says "oh that happened, hmmm I didn't know".

    He and his handlers saw an opportunity at some point to make money down the road, and snatched it up. I guess we'll just wait and see if there's any official "Tebowing" merchandise within the next year.
    Maybe you should stick to football because trademarks, copyrights and patents along with illegal marketing are subjects you seem to know very little about.

    Cory do you hate, or just irritate?

    Wrong knee. It's been pointed out before that elbow on opposite knee is Thinker, elbow on same knee is Tebow. Tebow is no thinker.

    So, Auguste Rodin's sculpture is now "Tebowing" illegally, without Tebow's permission!

    Sorry, like I said, I'm not buying any of it.

    Yes you can......In fact Michael Jordan has done just great with the rights to use his silloute on clothing and other merchandise. I have several Jordan items that dont say Jordan on them, only the jumpman logo.

    I used the hypothetical "PeytonBites" because it contains the name "Peyton" in a similar way that the word "Tebowing" contains the name "Tebow." It was my hope people could see how a product name can be derived from a person's name, and not be exactly just his name. I don't see how any further explanation could make it clearer if you missed it.

    As for the likeness -- sure, if a piece of merchandise in question does not have his likeness, then that's moot. I was pointing out for completeness a person's rights when it comes to his name and likeness.

    You've done a good job of making it clear where you're coming from -- no further clarification needed. You're pretty much on record that we will, in fact, see for-profit "Tebowing" products from Tim Tebow in the near future.

    I was just pointing out some details for those that might be interested.

You can't just sell "PeytonBites" snacks with the likeness of Peyton just because you "made up the name." There is an interest a person has in his own name, and goods being sold with combinations of his name and likeness. As part of that overall analysis and process, a person will often trademark things involving combinations of their name and/or likeness to simplify the debate. There's no basic right to use a trade name just because you "made it up." Associating a person's name or likeness with a product is something that can be regulated.

    The people at tebowing.com, the ones who actually started the phrase, give the proceeds of their merchandise to charity as well. What's the difference if tebow does it or they do it?

    I'm not buying any of this. Its about money, brand building and protecting his "image". Maybe Terrell Davis should have trademarked the mile high salute....
    Whats wrong with brand building? Like I said, the guy earned his fame and he should reap the rewards whenever possible. And your right, perhaps TD should have taken any and all advantages from his fame. Cant blame Tebow or Tebows "brand" for being smart business people.
    As far as the "people who actually started the phrase" tough luck. They should have figured out a way to protect their product/phrase/whatever.

    You seem to think this creates some kind of conflict of interests, but your wrong. Hes a smart business person and has surrounded himself with people who can help build a succesful "brand".... a true american success story that he should be proud of.

    It's interesting, because the more relaxed the better (for managing one's internal activity, shall we say).......

    And yes, if blessed with that last name, I might be inclined to make something good out of it.......sort of the lemons to lemonade story......sorta

    You don't live in Denver, and are too young to remember anyway, but there were people selling hats, t-shirts, bumper stickers ETC of the mile high salute.

    Tebow's MARKETING firm filed the trademark. That's all that needs to be said.

    We'll all just agree to disagree, because no one's mind is going to change.
