DeMarcus Lawrence, Kwon Alexander at odds over ‘Hot Boyzz’ trademark

DeMarcus Lawrence

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Kwon Alexander probably figured he’d be mentally focused on his Super Bowl battle with the Kansas City Chiefs, but it sounds like he’s sparked a bit of a legal battle for himself.

Alexander filed a trademark for the phrases “Hot Boyzz” and “Hot Boyzz University,” a moniker the 49er defense has gone by all season.

Just one problem: the Dallas Cowboys used the moniker “Hot Boyz” in 2018. DeMarcus Lawrence, the mind behind that trademarked movement, was not particularly pleased and suggested he’d be lawyering up.

This will be a fun one for the copyright lawyers. Alexander has added an extra Z, but getting that copyrighted might be a stretch. The 49ers linebacker might give Lawrence the same advice the Cowboys lineman gave an autograph seeker recently.
