NBA star Giannis Antetokounmpo isn’t playing around with people trying to profit off “Greek Freak” and has filed his third lawsuit this week over his nickname.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Antetokounmpo is suing a man named Monte Eady for selling merchandise with his nickname “Greek Freak.”
The federal lawsuit accuses the defendant of trademark infringement, counterfeiting of his trademark, trademark dilution, deceptive acts and practices and multiple other claims. Antetokounmpo says he has spent a bunch of time, money and resources into developing, promoting and advertising his “Greek Freak” band. He obtained multiple trademarks that allow him to sell various products.
