NFL THREATENS BUSINESSES OVER SOCIAL MEDIA PICS
The NFL sent a letter to Orefici Watches demanding the company immediately stop posting pictures of NFL stars wearing their jewelry on its various websites and social media pages.
But the explanation is the interesting part — in the letter, the NFL says the league “has the exclusive right to license the names, likenesses, images” and more of nearly all NFL players for commercial products and promotions involving six or more players.
The NFL demanded Orefici remove the images ASAP or else it would take further legal action against the company. We’re told Orefici complied.
FYI — after the company received the letter, DeMarco Murray contacted the company and bought 22 watchesfor various teammates … though pics of the players sporting the watches are noticeably absent from Orefici’s social media.

Players have their own individual endorsement deals the NFL just wants to profit just like the Dre Beats thing they dont want the players wearing them at NFL functions because Bose is the sponsor
I’m doing research now. It said you can use a certain number of images before they charge you
It’s all in the dating or use of the logo used too.
I think they can wear whatever they want in pics if its not mixed in with their football gear
It would be a drag out fight in court.
