Lamar Jackson has filed a lawsuit in the Southern District of Florida against Amazon for trademark infringement.
The plaintiff alleges that the defendant promoted and facilitated the sale of products that featured the plaintiff trademarks and product likeness without permission or authorization.
The plaintiff reportedly said that the products have the lines “Lamarvelous”, “Action Jackson” and “Not bad for a running back,” on them and were advertised and promoted on Amazon for purchase.
The plaintiff reportedly said it had asked Amazon to remove those items from their site but no action was taken.
The plaintiff reportedly said that by having those products on Amazon, customers may believe that he entered into an agreement with Amazon thereby causing confusion and damages.
Jackson seeks payment for damages and asked the court to require Amazon to count sales it generated from merchandise that features Jackson’s name, image or likeness and ban the website from offering such items without authorization.
Jackson is also seeking additional damages that he feels Amazon inflicted upon him and his company.
The case is pending.
