The best basketball player of the Slovenian national team, Luka Dončić, sued his mother, Mirjam Poterbin, because he wants to regain full control over the brands that bear his name.
As reported by NBA analyst and former New York Times and Washington Post journalist Mark Stein, Doncic has filed a request with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) requesting the cancellation of the trademark registration “Luka Doncic 7”, which is owned by his mothers.
“I continue to grow as a player and as a person, so it’s important for me to control my own brand,” Doncic told The Stein line.
The Dallas basketball player wanted to register his brand as “Luka Doncic”, but the Patent and Trademark Office refused to do so because there is already a “Luka Doncic 7” brand, and his mother did not want to cancel it.
The lawsuit states that Dončić is not associated with that brand and that he does not approve of placing goods and services under that name.
Mark Stein reported that Doncic is no longer associated with the companies that own and ship the brand “LD 77” and that manage the site lukadoncic.com.
According to the Agency for Public Records (Ajpes), these companies are currently jointly managed by Mirjam Poterbin and director Boris Požeg.
