NFL MVP, Lamar Jackson, has sued Amazon for allowing third-party vendors to sell unlicensed goods that feature his name, likeness and/or registered trademarks.
The Baltimore Ravens quarterback has filed a lawsuit against them, saying that he wants "Amazon to count sales it generated from merchandise that features Jackson's name, image or likeness and ban the website from offering such items without authorization."
Jackson also wants Amazon to remove the products listed on its website, which use the phrases, "Lamarvelous," "Action Jackson" and "Not bad for a running back," per TMZ Sports. The lawsuit claims that Amazon's actions brought "significant damage" to Jackson's brand, as he runs his own merchandise company, Era 8 Apparel.
He is suing for Amazon for compensation and damages, but amount has not been disclosed.
Jackson became MVP after leading the league with 36 touchdown passes and setting the league record for most rushing yards by a quarterback in a single season (1,206).
