Josh Gerben Quoted by ESPN about Colin Kaepernick’s Trademark Filing

Although not having played in the NFL since 2016, Colin Kaepernick is still in the public eye.  This month, he has filed a trademark of a graphical depiction of his face and signature afro hairstyle, that covers a variety of goods.

Josh Gerben was quoted by ESPN regarding the business strategy behind the filing:

“I think it’s very smart,” trademark attorney Josh Gerben of Washington-based Gerben Law said of Kaepernick’s filing. “Nike made him relevant. Now he can monetize that and promote his movement more.”
