Well, we have to give them credit. They've pretty much covered anything!
Now that the Harry Potter film franchise is quickly approaching its conclusion, Warner Brothers is attempting to ensure that they milk the cashcow series for everything its worth - by securing the rights to as many aspects of the fantasy series - and branding these aspects on pretty much any medium imaginable!
Take the wizarding sport of Quidditch, featured in the series, for example - Warner Brothers has trademarked its name and likeness, so that only they can EXCLUSIVELY the following products:
Clothing for men, women and children, namely, shirts, t-shirts, sweatshirts, jogging suits, trousers, pants, shorts, tank tops, rainwear, cloth bibs, skirts, blouses, dresses, suspenders, sweaters, jackets, coats, raincoats, snow suits, ties, robes, hats, caps, sunvisors, belts, scarves, sleepwear, pajamas, lingerie, underwear, boots, shoes, sneakers, sandals, booties, slipper socks, swimwear and masquerade and Halloween costumes and masks sold in connection therewith"
Well, well, well…lingerie, huh?
We think it's time for Warner Brothers to release that to coincide with the final film!
Who wouldn't want quidditch lingerie?!
LOLz! Toooo much! We love it!
Check out everything else to which the word Quidditch is trademarked…AFTER THE JUMP!
