New York Jets back up quarterback Tim Tebow is currently in the process of trademarking the phrase “tebowing.”
Newsday first reported that one of seven trademarks Tebow filed for, using the term, was published for opposition Oct. 9. After a 30-day period granted in case there are objections, Tebow will be closer to being an owner of the mark.
“In the seven filings, Tebow says intended uses for the word “Tebowing” are to connect it with everything from sales of hats and shirts to even toy guns and pantyhose,” wrote ESPNNewYork.com.
Even though Tebow doesn’t want to make money off of the trademark, he could lose it if he doesn’t prove that he plans on using it for business purposes.
