RB Jones’ Attorney Sends a Cease-and-Desist Order to an Arkansas Man

Cowboys RB Felix Jones’ attorney has issued a cease-and-desist order to an Arkansas man who he says was using his name and likeness without his permission:

An attorney for Felix Jones issued a cease-and-desist letter to a Little Rock man who, Jones says, used the Dallas Cowboys running back’s name and likeness without permission. Brian Davis of Little Rock is accused of using Jones’ likeness and name to promote a football camp in Little Rock this week.

Davis also claimed Jones would sign autographs at a June 24 Arkansas Travelers baseball game in North Little Rock, an arrangement Jones was not aware of, according to Jones. “Mr. Davis does not represent me in any formal capacity,” Jones said in a statement.

“His statements of my participation in these events were made without permission from my management or me.” Jones, a former Arkansas Razorback, was unable to sign autographs because of a contractual obligation with trading card maker Topps, and the Travelers were never informed.

Travelers General Manager Pete Laven said he was initially approached by Davis, who offered to bring Jones to the ballpark for an appearance fee. “I was told he would sign from 7:15 to 8:15, which we put in our press release,” Laven told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette on June 24. “Apparently, that was never relayed to Felix Jones or the people who handle his business.”
