Celtics Player Faces Lawsuit for ‘Scream’ Mask Use

Eastern Unlimited has sued Boston Celtics point guard Terry Rozier for copyright and trademark infringement, Forbes reports. Rozier, nicknamed Scary Terry, sold merchandise featuring a cartoon image of himself wearing the white mask from the “Scream” horror films. Eastern Unlimited holds the copyright and trademark registrations and negotiated licenses for the mask to appear in the film series. The company filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York and is requesting an injunction to stop Rozier’s use of the mask image on merchandise. The company is seeking damages for trademark infringement, trademark counterfeiting and trademark dilution as well as attorney costs.
