: : I have an idea which would involve the use of NFL Team Logos that I feel is unique and would sell like hotcakes in all NFL markets. Being a novice to this, I have a number of questions;
: : 1. What is the cost of an NFL Properties license, how long does it last, and what % of each sale does the NFL demand, and can I use it to market more than one product?
: : 2. As stated my idea involves the use of team logos. Despite the is fact, would I be able to obtain copyright or patent protection to protect the "non-NFL" or intellectual portion of my idea?
: : 3. I know that the initial cost of Licensure is quite high. Would if I sought an entity with an wxisting license, is it legal for me to pursue a contractual agreement with said entity?
: : Sorry about the length of this but I have no idea where to go next.
: : Any help would be appreciated.

: Call 1.212.450.2780. You'll get a recording at NFL Properties. Get to an operator, ask her to put you in touch with the Admin in the Licensing department, plead ignorance, and go from there.
The number is probably correct. My experience has been that Theare not interested in small operators and that they want a BIG payment up front aginst minimum royalties.
