A local Jacksonville man has sued the Jacksonville Jaguars for copyright infringement, according to sports litigations reporter Paul D. Anderson.
The man claims that the team stole his idea for a "three-point stand" used in pre-game warmups and by field goal kickers to practice on the sideline. A three-page document has been filed at a Jacksonville district court, alleging copyright infringement.
When you read through the document, you will notice that the plaintiff apparently still uses a typewriter instead of a computer, judging by how he has corrected some of his typos. I can't even make much sense of the first point of the document, which reads:
IN 1996 THE THREE POINT STANDS WAS INVENTION THE PLAINTIFF INVENTION THE THREE POINT STANDS AND ASK THE DEFENDANTS TO BUY
ONE THREE POINT STANDS AND HANDDELEVER TO THE N.F.L. KICKER AND THE TEAM.
The man even included a picture of the three-point stand as evidence, which actually doesn't look anything like a three-point stand because it only has two points.
The plaintiff is seeking "5.000.000.million." in damages in the case.
