OK, we get it. But is there really a market for Colin Kaepernick lampshades? From ESPN:
The filing, which showed up on the website for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Wednesday but was filed last Friday, says the intent is to use the image on everything from shampoo and hairspray to jewelry and lampshades.
The filing also says the image could be used in association with “providing classes, workshops, seminars and camps in the field of self empowerment and awareness to properly interact with law enforcement” as well as in association with “production of television shows and films.”
Hardest hit? Those who made shirts in solidarity with the former NFL QB:
