Antetokounmpo Technical Win Over Stolen Greek Freak Name Use

Turns out you can’t beat NBA MVP Superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo on the court or in court either after he was awarded $11,304 in attorney’s fees for unauthorized use of his nickname ‘The Greek Freak’ in merchandising.

His intellectual property rights were violated, said a Federal Magistrate in New York although he’ll have to try to collect the damages himself, reported Sportico for Yahoo.

He said his name, trademark, image, and likeness was improperly used for jerseys, phone cases, clocks, pillows, greeting cards, shower curtains, and even drug paraphernalia, no report how much money was made.

The ruling was against defendants Sherrie Richardson-Miller and Jordan Reyes, who didn’t show up and kept profiting off the use of Antetokounmpo’s name and appear to be getting away with it still. Antetokounmpo, 27, who signed a $228 million contract to stay with The Milwaukee Bucks, sued them and others for using his trademark in products sold on etsy.com, redbubble.com, and other online platforms that he didn’t endorse or consent to.

It looks like only a Technical Foul as it could cost him more than the judgment to get the money or their profits.
