Did you know that the term “worship leader” is trademarked by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO)? The man behind the social media account, “Rogue Worship Leader,” a worship director, made this discovery after his Facebook account was shut down for trademark infringement.
“The company Worship Leader is essentially reporting me for violating trademark laws because I have the term, ‘worship leader,’ in my name,” he said in an Instagram video posted Thursday. “How crazy is that? This is a common term. This is a job title. It’s a term that has been used by churches, thousands of churches all over the world.”
