Hairy Times in Trademark

Browsing

Anthony Davis, the likely No. 1 overall pick in this year's NBA draft, recently filed a trademark for multiple phrases related to his most unique physical feature --his unibrow.  Reports indicate that:

Earlier this month, the 19-year-old applied to trademark the terms “Fear the Brow,” and “Raise the Brow,” CNBC reported Monday Both terms were used extensively last season on shirts and signs and in the media, and there are currently multiple online shops, like this one, selling merchandise with these phrases; they would be restricted in doing so once Davis’ trademarks are approved.

Not bad, but I probably would have gone with "Bow to the Brow."
