Chargers countdown: San Diego Chargers file for Los Angeles trademark names
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) - With the Los Angeles Rams getting a jump start on tickets sales, the San Diego Chargers have taken another step towards a move to Los Angeles by securing trademarks for what could possibly be the team’s new name.
Last Thursday, the Chargers applied for the trademark terms “Los Angeles Chargers” and “LA Chargers” with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
The trademarks covers a wide-range of products including helmets, visual recordings, video game software, jewelry, posters, trading cards and toys, among many other items.
First reported by the Los Angeles Times, the application was filed by the Chargers Football Company and listed NFL’s Senior Vice President and Chief Litigation Officer Anastasia Danias as the attorney of record.
A meeting took place Monday between the Chargers Rams, but the two organizations agreed to not discuss their negotiations with the public. When or if they will meet again remains to be seen.
