    If it's not an overstep to deny a new application, it's not an overstep to rescind a trademark after further review, no matter how long it's been.

    I don't get to post my opinion?

    5 people filed this suit. We've been down this path repeatedly in this thread.

    Your first sentence is true. Your second sentence is hyperbole. There are 2.9 million American Indians in the 2010 census and that group is growing at twice the rate of the whole U.S.

    You're making a great argument as to why giving the government power over trademarks is a really bad idea.

    2.9 million out of of nation of 300 million. Not quite the numbers that would be if our nation didn't try to kill them out.

    Ah, so now I understand. You don't think as a citizen I have a First Amendment right to voice my opinion. Got it.

    The Washington Redskins aren't a state, and they are the ones that violated the patent rules.

    The motive was not to kill them out. The motive was to grab their land. Bloody land grabbing was everywhere in the world at that time, the US was not different.
