    I see the word application in both those quotes.

    This wasn't an application, it was an active patent.

    Government run amok and forcing decisions where they have no business doing so. Find the moron who signed off on this and rake him or her over the coals. I can't understand why people don't trust the government...
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    How many people are offended by any number of college sports team names? This move is absolutely capricious in that it singled out one team name and did not remove all similarly "offensive" other names in all contexts.

    Thanks for posting that. As I said, I'm not a patent attorney.

    I do wonder though, if the law also gives them the power to do so retroactively? The statute you reference discusses rejection of an application, not the removal of existing protection granted under the law. That would be a good cause for action against the government, as arbitrary application of the law.

    You may very well be correct. But I feel that given his history, the owner of the Redskins will fight this.

    No, they do not have such power constitutionally. However, traditionally quite a lot of constitutional overreach centers around the patent office. The SCOTUS has effectively killed the framer's greatest gift to our country - the Public Domain.

    Probably. And if it enters the mainstream media at Fox/CNN/MSNBC, the blaming will start...
