Charles Ramsey Spends Big Money to Trademark His Name and Open a Website

The candid and flamboyant Charles Ramsey isn’t as ignorant as the tabloids make him seem. After the 43-year-old Cleveland native rescued three women from a decade of captivity, Ramsey shot right up to fame, being donned a national hero. Now his name is worth a pretty penny, and he’s up to grabbing every last one.

Early June, Ramsey went and filed three applications with the United States Patent and Trademark Office to get his name issued as an actual catch phrase and legal trademark. Ramsey’s lawyer submitted “Charles Ramsey”, “Charles Seymour Ramsey” and Charles’ famous phrase “Dead Giveaway”, the quote Ramsey said in his initial interview after rescuing the girls on May 6.

“I knew something was wrong when a little, pretty white girl ran into a black man’s arms. Something is wrong here. Dead giveaway,” said Ramsey.

Smoking Gun confirms that Ramsey spent $1,650 on USPTO applications just to stamp his name for commercial purposes. His name will be used to cover products like bracelets, t-shirts, shoes and even Halloween costumes with masks and clothing attire to match Ramsey’s.

Ramsey saw the trademark idea as an opportunity when local restaurants in Cleveland started using his name for burgers.

“I never told these people they could use my name for this,” Ramsey said in a statement released by his lawyer.

Ramsey now has an official website currently under construction called charlesramseylive.com. The website will keep everyone updated on “everything Ramsey”. The homepage sports a  “Team Ramsey, LLC” logo and seems pretty legit.

Ariel Castro pleaded guilty to the charges of kidnapping Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight. Castro held the women in the basement of his Cleveland Ohio home for over a decade. During captivity, one of the girls even gave birth to a child that is reportedly Castro’s.

Good luck Charles, you’ve came a long way my brother.

  1. I am just praying that he has a good adviser and someone to help him manage his life.

  2. Bet it didn't cost as much as that lawyer he's paying who told him to do this.

  3. Not buy you some teeth

  4. nothing wrong w a man who did a good thing making some money.

  5. Why isn't Oprah Winfrey trying to help this man like she helps all those white people.

  6. It would help our race as to not come across as ignorant, as well as to allow the reader to appreciate the article if the writers proofread their work before sharing it with the public: "you’ve came a long way my brother" is not correct grammar. Why is correct grammar usage such a struggle for some of our people?

  7. The luster has wore off bro…too little to late.

  8. You go man…. Great idea! Others do it; so can you.

  9. His trade mark ~~~~

  10. Oprah help more than white people,she helps a whole lot of black folks too,did u forget about the school she built in Africa,plus many other things, smh….


  12. Don’t say “donned a hero;” say “deemed” or “named.” “Donned” means “put on,” as clothes.

    After Mr. Ramsey earns some money, he might want to have some expensive dental work done. I hope he can hang on to some of his money. It’s been a long drought, so he might want to spend big, as he has already, on an expensive auto. “Act in haste and repent at leisure.”

  13. Blessings to ya, brotha. Not a single ounce of appreciation was doled out from the ladies, the neighborhood or folk in the media eager to bring up history and present a brother like he's not worthy of more than a couple minutes of celebrity/notability, so hopefully the community will measure up with this endeavor…

  14. According to recent articles, Charles needs a quick course in managing his money.

    He may want to ask for a refund on that investment.

    I predict he will be broke and bankrupt by Jan 1, 2014.

    Hope he has fun while it last.

    He did an amazing thing being there.

  15. Blessings.

  16. “You’ve came a long way”. What kind of grammar is that?? You are making us look bad. Even if it was a typo, you are still making us look bad.

  17. It was just a couple weeks ago that this site was reporting Mr. Ramsey being broke as he was before rescuing those girls. Damn tabloids!

  18. Hey everybody needs money to live. Ur ok Charles Ramsey
