Robert Griffin III Is Trademarking RG3
Washington Redskins new quarterback and number two overall draft pick Robert Griffin III has decided to protect his name and is taking legal measures to ensure no one improperly benefits from his fame or success.
With the help of an attorney, Griffin created his own company, Thr3escompany, LLC and submitted the paperwork to trademark four of his aliases RGIII, RG3, Robert Griffin III, and Unbelievable Believable.
This is so his name or nickname cannot be printed on “shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, pants, shorts, footwear, hats, caps, athletic uniforms” without his consent.
The phrase, “Unbelievably Believable,” is a reference to his Heisman Trophy acceptance speech, where he said the following:
“This is unbelievably believable. It’s unbelievable because in the moment we’re all amazed when great things happen. But it’s believable because great things don’t happen without hard work.”
Griffin’s people were well aware of what was happening in Washington, re: RGIII merchandise and specials. And Twitter confirms.
“All of my RGIII shirts were pulled by Skreened a few weeks ago. They said someone made a copywrite claim, but wouldn’t say who,” one person wrote.
“Ours got pulled the day he trademarked them his agents sent a nice letter lol,” someone else wrote.
