Trademark Office should revoke Redskins team name
According to the Huffington Post, Nancy Pelosi stated at an event hosted by the National Congress of American Indians that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office should stop issuing the ‘Redskins’ trademark for the Washington Redskins football team because the name is demeaning to American Indians. Trademarks containing the word ‘Redskins’ have been refused by the Office at least 11 times since 1992. However, in the case of the Redskins football team, the Office would have to revoke a trademark that has already been granted. And that is altogether a different ballgame.
