For years people in New Orleans made bootleg saints things black and gold and fleur de lis. Things that say who dat or have players numbers, but never using the word Saints or the exact fleur de lis. Never any real problem until a few years ago when the saints made the super bowl and the nfl sent cease and desist letters to anyone they could find that was selling anything that toed the line. Well locals thought it was BS and the NFL never really did anything about the situation since they really have no copyright authority over the colors black and gold or the fleur de lis shape. Yes they do on a specific black and a specific gold and a specific fleur de lis, but not on all of them. Basically I’d say it depends on how big your business is, and how generic you make things a star would be pretty tough to call you out on i’d think, but the long horn might be a little closer to the line.
