Recommended Posts

LeBron James wants a little lettuce on his Taco Tuesday.

The Los Angeles Lakers superstar is looking to monetize his popular videos by filing to trademark the term "Taco Tuesday."

One of James' companies, LBJ Trademarks, submitted the necessary paperwork with the United States Patent and Trademark Office in August. The application states that the goods and services involved with the trademark involve "advertising and marketing services provided by means of indirect methods of marketing communications, namely, social media, search engine marketing, inquiry marketing, internet marketing, mobile marketing, blogging and other forms of passive, sharable or viral communications channels."

 

The company also lists "podcasting services" and "online entertainment services, namely, providing a website featuring non-downloadable videos, and social media posts in the field of sports, entertainment, current events and popular culture."

At least he didn’t try to trademark THE like Ohio state did.

I'd argue that trying to trademark Taco Tuesday whilst living in Southern California may be even dumber.

This is going to fuck up Taco Tuesday at the club. Maybe they'll change it to Taco Wednesday.

I'm honestly flabbergasted by this. What is the goal here?

You lose (which they will), and look like a tool.

Or, you somehow win, and now thousands of Latinos in LA (and elsewhere) earning $25k a year for making bomb ass real tacos have to reevaluate their marketing to make sure that they're not infringing on anything.

Way to endear yourself to the locals, King.

Delonte West needs to trademark "I Fucked Your Mom Friday's."

I almost feel bad about laughing at this. Almost.

What a great book that's going to make one day: LeBron's mom's struggles throughout her life; Delonte West's mental health and complete break down after the incident; LeBron finding out mid-playoffs, a couple of months before having to decide where to continue his career, with everyone watching and analyzing his every move. What a horrible situation to be in as one of the biggest celebrities on the planet.

Lebron will still allow use of the phrase......for a small fee

You'd have to go fish him out of the homeless camps somewhere.

Given that LbJ's goods and services won't have much/anything to do with restaurant services or food, it might slide by.  Taco John's may oppose though.

Then why does he want to trademark the phrase?

I give fewer than zero fucks about the NBA, and thus Lebron, so I don't know what he uses Taco Tuesday for, but his registration application has the following goods/services:

 

Word Mark TACO TUESDAY
Goods and Services IC 009. US 021 023 026 036 038. G & S: Downloadable audio/visual works

IC 035. US 100 101 102. G & S: Advertising and marketing services provided by means of indirect methods of marketing communications, namely, social media, search engine marketing, inquiry marketing, internet marketing, mobile marketing, blogging and other forms of passive, sharable or viral communications channels

IC 038. US 100 101 104. G & S: Podcasting services

IC 041. US 100 101 107. G & S: Online entertainment services, namely, providing a website featuring non-downloadable videos, and social media posts in the field of sports, entertainment, current events and popular culture

There are a number of non-food-related Taco Tuesday registrations subsequent to Taco Johns.

Taco John's is dreadful-but after a year of living in the frozen north of Montana back in the eighties, their sludge on a softshell became a comfort to a homesick Texan.

I'm filing this completely stupid trademark application so that I can't be sued later for using the term Taco Tuesday. Yeah right, you fucking moron.

Lebron says that he should voice his opinions and we should care about them. Then he goes and shows how out of touch he is by attempting this.  This is why people want him to shut up and play. Had no one in his crew ever had a taco before? What a fucking moron.

dude, but he says 'Taco Tuesday' in a funny voice every Tuesday on instaface or something.  That's pretty much a slam dunk case for getting a TM on that.
