Redskins QB Robert Griffin III In Trademark Dispute Over Use Of 'RG3'
RGIII and RG3 might have to settle a dispute over how "RG3" is used, if that sentence was confusing, so is the story we're about to tell.
The motorcycle suspension parts company Research Group 3 has long been known by its initials "RG3." The letters "RG3" are on a lot of its products, which Rob Henricksen started as a company back in 1998, according to The Washington Post.
There is a rather famous player nicknamed RG3, which is where the problem arises, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III filed paperwork last year to trademark the phrases "RGIII" and "RG3" for commercial use on apparel. Now the motorcyle parts company is filing an extension with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to oppose both of the quarterback's filings.
"We don't want to have any confusion in the marketplace, and we're sure he doesn't, either," said Catherine Holland, an intellectual property lawyer that is representing the Research Group 3.
