To use someone's name and likeness for monetary gain requires their permission. I believe the lawsuit is more about principle than money. The lawsuit is legitimate from a business standpoint and far from frivolous. Since he markets himself, he should closely monitor the use of his name and make money off of it when used for profit. I don't like TO and most of the stuff he does, but I can't fault him for this.

And just what companies are beating down his door for him to sign endorsements? His name and image is not worth much if anything. For 99.9% percent of the NFL players I agree with you. Owens is somewhat of an exception right now as he should be trying to improve his image, not bilk more money from someone. Where was this lawsuit in 06? Sounds like he has waited some time to feel violated... Just my opinion..
