    Anyone can use it. It can't be registered. Big difference.


    Again. Anyone can use any image they want. However, trademarking it, legally registering it, is no longer being allowed.
    So it's offensive (to you), but anyone can use it, so all that's been accomplished is prohibiting a trademark on it. Got it.

    Your point? Are you aware of the term "Patent law".

    Re: Patent office cancels Redskins trademarks

    This is stupid... and an overreach of government authority. Truth is though I expect this type of bull from a LibDem Executive branch, they pander to minorities and the uninformed in order to solodify their own power in DC this is nothing more than the Exec Branch flexing their 'Muscles' while trying to push their PC agenda.

    Lets remember the context with which the name 'redskin' is used here. To the Redskins the name is something STRONG and POWERFUL it is a symbol of the WARRIOR and something their fans take much pride in. I have native american ancestry myself (1/16th cherokee) and I take no offense to the term at all. Native Americans should take pride in the fact there are so many sportsteams that use their names (or nicknames) for their teams because it shows that modern owners and fans still associate STRENGTH, PRIDE, and FEARLESSNESS with Native Americans.

    That said while the trademark is being wrongfully stripped if I were the Redskins I would get an estimate on how much money this action by the Trademark Office is costing the team per day, then I would recoup those losses in Court and sue for the cost of attorneys as well. The redskins should make the fed pay through the nose for this.

    I think we should bombard the patent office with applications for logos using, "nigger, spick, gook, beaner, kike, dego, fag, bitch and/or mackeral smacker" and watch their heads explode.
    You do love typing racial slurs, don't you?

    The name was registered already.

    So this isn't about making anything right for the Native Americans, it was all just to get the government to arbitrate the trademark. Wow, is that a victory for anyone?

    It offends 10%. That's enough for me. Why do you think offense should be put to a vote?

    What I detest in this story is exactly what you said here (bolded part). I'm amazed that not everyone shares our concern.
    At this moment in time we have the IRS obviously being used to damage the free speech rights of citizens, while destroying evidence of their crime as they go. We have encouragement by the White House of invasion by foreign countries, economic ruin with no recourse by the EPA on states conducting legitimate business activities, and the list goes on.

    And this isn't a problem?

    Bottom line is, we're not alone in our disgust. I have faith this little fad called Progressivism is on the final course of it's foregone collapse, just as it did before. The real work begins afterwards, when so many who have been thoroughly scammed by them will need to be de-programed.
