3 Licensing Lawsuits to Watch

NFL Players Sue FanDuel

Already on the defensive for allegedly running a gambling operation without a license in states like Nevada and New York, daily fantasy football operators have a new legal problem. A group of NFL players led by Washington receiver Pierre Garcon filed a class action against FanDuel over its unlicensed use of the players’ names and images for games and advertising.

Colts Latest NFL Team Sued by Texas A&M over ’12th Man’

Speaking of football, Texas A&M is suing the Indianapolis Colts for using its “12th man” trademark without permission. A&M has been down this road before. A decade ago, the school filed a similar suit against the Seattle Seahawks. The case settled in 2006 with the Seahawks agreeing to pay A&M royalties over 10 years for using the phrase “12th man,” the same arrangement the school concluded with the Buffalo Bills earlier.

Inventor Sues Hasbro for “Life” Royalties

The widow of a toy inventor wants a Rhode Island federal court to declare that her late husband helped invent The Game of Life and that Hasbro owes his estate at least $2 million in royalties. The gentleman to whom Hasbro does pay royalties filed his own lawsuit claiming that he’s the sole inventor of the game, which has sold more than 30 million copies. There’s been no public response from Hasbro so far.
