The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board canceled six trademark registrations owned by the Washington NFL club today, ruling that the term "Redskins" was disparaging to "a substantial composite" of American Indians when the marks were granted between 1967 and 1990.


The Washington team can appeal and retain its federal trademark rights in the meantime. And even if the club loses on appeal, it can continue to use the name, as it has for more than 80 years. But without trademark protection, others could potentially use the team's name and logos to sell merchandise with impunity, although owners of unregistered marks can still try to protect them through state statutes or common law.

I agree "Redskins" is as insensitive a nickname as there is in sports.  However, I find it a bit unnerving that our gov't has time to worry about this instead of the more important matters.  Big brother and all....

because the U.S. government has  no right meddling in the business of the NFL
"Whenever I see those crimson jerseys and crimson helmets, I feel humbled to have played football for Alabama. Other players in the NFL talk to me about their schools and their traditions. I just smile knowing the immense love Alabama fans have for our school and its football program. I'm proud to be a part of that Crimson Tide heritage."

-- Derrick Thomas

Btw it isn't exactly hurting the wash redskins. The nfl collects trademark monies from all team's sales and distributes the money evenly.
