Tebow Jersey Recall
March 29, 2012 by staff
Tebow Jersey Recall, Nike Inc., the world’s biggest sporting-goods company, won a judge’s order temporarily blocking Adidas AG’s Reebok International from using quarterback Tim Tebow’s name on New York Jets-related clothing.
U.S. District Judge Kevin Castel in Manhattan yesterday granted Nike’s request for a temporary restraining order, a day after the Beaverton, Oregon-based company filed a lawsuit. Reebok’s licensing agreement with the National Football League ends March 31 and Nike is to become the official supplier of licensed NFL apparel.
Castel blocked Reebok from manufacturing, selling or otherwise marketing New York Jets-related apparel with the name Tebow on it. The order doesn’t apply to Denver Broncos-related apparel with Tebow’s name. Reebok must recall unauthorized Tebow products, the judge ruled.
In the lawsuit, Nike claimed it, not Reebok, has rights to use Tebow’s name. The judge scheduled a hearing for April 4 in Manhattan federal court.
