    Wrong.

    It's very relevant to the story which is about trademarks.

    We know that. It's an attempt to force them to change their name through financial loss.

    That is what I am wondering. This will open up Pandora's box. If 5 offended people have the ability to change a name, then we can have unlimited supreme court cases over offensive names of products.

    I personally think that the owner should calculate the cost of changing their name, ask for that amount of money from the offended parties and then change the name ASAP. A ruling against the Washington Redskins could alter our free market system forever. The owner of the Washington Redskins is being very unreasonable and very selfish.

    A name change is a reasonable request but a ridiculous demand.

    Absolutely - when they abuse power at this level, we should be very worried.
    Harry Reid is out tooting his horn all ready over the patent being cancelled, but we know Reid has been pushing for a name change
    from the beginning. Nothing better for him to do I suppose...

    I like that strategy better than abusing our court system.
