This kid is smart! He’s young and looks to have a bright future ahead of him, so he’s doing what he need to do to protect his brand. Colin Kaepernick’s signature pose “Kaepernicking” (when he kisses his flexed bicep) has become so popular that the 49ers QB has filed for the trademark.
Details after the jump…
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office website shows the registration was filed on Jan. 14, and Colin Kaepernick intends to use it on clothing, specifically T-shirts.
Kaepernick’s marketing team already has authorized a few small T-shirt companies to use his name and image on their products.
The official “Kaepernicking” shirt is made by a company called Sportiqe. Some proceeds from that shirt go to Camp Taylor, which organizes camps for children with congenital heart defects.
Kaepernick has been involved with the camp; his adoptive parents lost two children to heart complications.
