Colin Kaepernick’s company, Inked Flash, filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office an image of his face to use on a variety of products and events.
The application, filed Friday, October 5, indicates he wants to use the image on lampshades, cell phone cases and clothing. He also wants to use the logo in association with “providing classes, workshops, seminars, and camps in the field of self-empowerment and awareness to properly interact with law enforcement” and with “production of television shows and films.”
The trademark application, which was first reported by ESPN, comes a little more than a month after Kaepernick was featured in a Nike advertising campaign as the face of the 30th anniversary of the company’s “Just Do It” ad campaign. Nike CEO Mark Parker said the campaign led to “record engagement.”
Colin kaepernick, who remains a free agent and has filed a collusion grievance against NFL owners, also sought to previously trademark “I’m With Kap” for use on clothing. That application was filed in August.
