(CBS Seattle) — Northwest Football LLC, the company that owns the Seattle Seahawks, was granted the trademark to “12s”, according to ESPN’s Darren Rovell.
Per KING, the Seahawks now have 11 registered trademarks. Among those trademarks are “Spirit of 12,” “We are 12,” and the number 12 on flags and banners.
The Seahawks do not own the trademark for “12th Man.” In 2006, the team agreed to pay the owner of the “12th Man” trademark, Texas A&M, $5,000 annually for the rights to use it around the stadium (but not on merchandise).
In January, Mike Baker of The Seattle Times reported that the Seahawks were also looking to trademark the word “Boom” and the number 12.
