Their subs are really really good. I haven't had one in years. They used to have one in Lancaster too but it shut down much like everything else has there since Springs moved their operations out of the country.

It undercuts the value of using his name in endorsements.

Look, I think college athletes should get paid for what they do. Spurrier is right. The NCAA is making millions off players.

The one area that the players still have a right to protection is their likeness and images. We don't need one more area where players get screwed financially. Clowney is great and he deserves his payday. Only Clemson fans want to limit what Clowney recieves for the special young man that he is. He is a Gamecock and will always be a Gamecock, and I am supporting him.

It is exactly the same principle. Image is an asset for an athlete like Clowney.

That said, you are making a mountain out of molehill in this case. Clowney and the owner have resolved the issue to the satisfaction of both parties.

I can see your point, but I doubt JD would lose any endorsement money over his name being on some two bit sub shop's sign. That being said it probably a fine line and it's tough to say when it's been crossed. That's why he has people to protect him. I support him and anyone else making as much money as humanly possible off there image/intellectual property and agree they have every right to protect it, I just think as I society we are a little quick to the draw when it comes to legal action, threat of legal action, cease and desist etc, and I'll leave it at that.

Seems to me like a non-issue now.

The guy thought he was being cute and is probably too dumb to know you can't use someone's name like that. But he took it down....so end of story.

People are always so damn fast to want to sue someone.

In reading the story, he doesn't even have a sandwich named after Clowney. He also explains that this happened 14 years ago with Mel Gibson. Gibson's agent NEVER threatened to sue, because there is nothing illegal about it. Instead, asked him to change the wording to shed a better light on Gibson, which the sub owner did.

Also reading this article, it looks like he will change the message but NOT take Clowney's name down. The only think Cook could do is file an injunction, which may or may not get granted. The sub owner could then file to momentarily get the injunction lifted, which he would. Then it would come down to is Cook interested in fighting that battle which he probably would ultimately lose since the sub owner has a LONG history of doing this, with very little issues. He has used Jake Delhomme's name poking fun at him. He has used Stephon Gilmore's name and this is not the first that JD's name has been used. He has also used the Carolina Panthers name in poking fun.

No sir, in reality, YOU are dead wrong. I have a law degree and I can tell you this IS illegal IF the person who's name is being used wants it stopped. If a person/business entity is using someone's name or likeness for profit, then they must have the permission of that person. There are numerous ways contracts are written to profit share if the person agrees to let his name be used. Also, the examples you give doesn't mean its not illegal, it simply means those people have decided not to file suit. Also, you have no idea what kind of contract might exist between the business and the person who's name is being used. Do you know for a FACT that Ben Roethlisburger isn't getting a share of the proceeds from the sales of those sandwiches? No. There are movie stars, athletes, etc. all over the world who have their names used in marketing but I can assure you they're getting paid.

I can see Clowney and his agent wanting to protect his "Brand". I have no problem with that.

Not trying to be funny, but I'm curious how this might apply to newspapers and magazines. Obviously newspapers are covered under freedom of press and I'm assuming someone who uses an athlete's name on a sign could similiarly argue freedom of speech. Is there a main difference that I'm missing? Just wondering if we may ever see people trying to sue a newspaper for using their name without permission.

To answer your question about the Roethlisburger, YES I do know he is not paid. My brother is married to the owner's sister, and i spoke with him to which he confirmed that Ben receives not financial benefit. Ben, instead considers it an HONOR. Ben has even been featured during an Monday Night Football Special as EATING the sandwich for one of their pre-game bits.

I am sure you are proud of your law degree, but no i am not DEAD wrong. Cook and Clowney would have to prove, in a court of law, that the owner of Sub Station II was able to benefit financially from this. Otherwise anytime someone put a name up on a marquee "IE, thoughts and prayers with Newtown families.", a precedent would be set.

The sad part is that sign has been up for 2 weeks with no press but thanks to Bus Cook, SS 2 has gotten plenty of free press and will now benefit. Cook needs to be worried about bigger fish than a local sub shop in Clowney's hometown, like Cam Newton's new contract or Brett Favre's next Wrangler commercial.

My guess is that Mel Gibson's agent would have threatened lawsuits or injunctions if it would hold up in court, but he did NOT. What he did instead was ask that the owner change the wording, which he did.

Actually, it was the owner who brought in the press not Cook. Cook just asked him to take down the message, please. The owner agreed. End of story.

Not a big tort case. No money damages. No lawsuits were filed. Owner and Clowney are fine. The guy is selling Gamecock subs. What is the problem anymore?

If his name is trade marked then his agent has every right to sue, legally anyway.

Stretch Armstrong can't compete with the reach on this comparison.

Well yea, that is pretty obvious. That's what the law says. Obviously just printing a name somewhere isn't illegal, but when you profit off that name it is if that person wants his cut. Do you really think this guy isn't doing this to get people to buy his product? Exactly. So yes, if Clowney wanted to sue, the likelihood that he would prevail is pretty high. No one with a straight face could go in the courtroom and claim this guy is not doing this for profit, to get people to buy his sandwiches.
