Radio Reminder: Super Bowl References

American football’s annual final presents potential radio fumbles.

Please remember the terms “Super Bowl” and “Super Sunday” are registered trademarks of the National Football League. Because the NFL strongly protects its trademarks, stations should diligently know the lines.

Ordinary on-air banter and news and sports reports may refer to the NFL championship game as the Super Bowl, since that is the event’s proper name.

Don’t mention the Super Bowl in such a way that the listener may infer a relationship between your station and the NFL that does not exist. In addition, do not use the Super Bowl or Super Sunday names in promoting game day-related events, such as “Station Super Bowl Party.”

Should you have further questions, your station is encouraged to visit the Solution Center for a range of support related to copyright and regulations. If your station is not a member, you can join today.
