    Well, it's a very tricky intellectual property fight.

    So while it's "not their trademark", they have a pretty good chance in court.

    What I'm struggling with is how the USPTO can pick and choose what the "Disparaging" names are.

    I'm going to go there now and find some.

    Now, maybe I'm reading these wrong, but these were approved.. They are no longer "renewed".

    I bet I could go on and on about this.

    Sounds like Harry Reid and a little kickback is happening.

    So how are those allowed, yet Redskins isn't?

    The only time I can even remember the term Redskin tossed around in a bad way was some 1950's western, That or the Tom Landry AmEx commercial. If the logo goes away that is too bad as it's a noble warrior on the helmet.

    It's great knowing our president and politicians are hard at work on this all important case for us. I feel so protected with these dip shits. Maybe they're dispersing videos of the redskins emblem in middle east and getting them all riled up? I'm sure this would be a good reason for them to kill more of ours.
