Is this “intellectual property?” Technically, yes. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback filed to trademark “Kaepernicking,” his bicep-kissing move that’s become ubiquitous. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office website shows a registration filed January 14, 2013. Mr. Kaepernick intends to use it on T-shirts, and some proceeds from the Sportiqe “Kaepernicking” shirt go to Camp Taylor, which organizes camps for children with congenital heart defects.
