New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow has a trademark on "Tebowing. "

The saying, which refers to the prayer-like, end-zone pose that Tebow does after scoring a touchdown, is now owned by Tebow, who won the rights to it in a battle with two fans.

"I know it was something that was cool for me in the past, but it's not something I do as 'Tebowing,'" Tebow said. "It's something I do that's prayer for me and then it got hyped up as Tebowing. So I think (it's) just to control how it's used as well. Make sure it's used in the right way."

According to a report in Newsday noted, Tebow was awarded the trademark Oct. 9. He said he doesn't plan to make money off the trademark, and if sometime down the road he did, the funds would benefit his charitable Foundation.
