Does this mean we will never see this image used again, or anything even remotely similar? I'm sure the Patent Office and every branch of the US government are going to prohibit the image of a man, obviously a Native American, with a feather on his head and white war paint. Is that right?

No more Halloween costumes that even slightly resemble that?
Is that what we can expect from the government?
