Watford captain Troy Dini and his wife decided to register the Black Lives Matter logo (“Black Lives Are Important”) as a trademark, reports fapl.ru, citing the Daily Mail.
As you know, with the resumption of the season, English Premier League clubs have decided to express their support for the Black Lives Matter campaign by kneeling, replacing the names on the t-shirts and placing the ‘matching emblem on the sleeves.
According to the publication, this emblem, where the letter “a” in the word “black” is represented as a kind of threatening fist, was painted by Dini and his wife Alisha Hozanne.
However, the Dini family does not claim authorship, as the idea itself was born during negotiations of the captains of the Premier League clubs.

Now Dini and his wife want to register this emblem, which will remain on the sleeves of Premier League clubs until the end of the season, as a trademark – not for money, but in order to prevent the use of the logo without authorization. And if it brings in money, they will be directed to charities.
