It's a big brouhaha over a small issue. Hell, even without their trademark, the Redskins' logo and font are copyrighted, so this may be more symbolic than financial. But Freepers do their best to make a mountain out of this molehill:
As far as SamuraiScot knows, all who disagree are foolish amateurs, and also revolutionaries.
Hmmm. The Patent Office approved the patent application quite a while ago, I would guess. As far as I know, they can't legally change their decision after rendering it, and having the applicant invest money in building the brand. The bureaucrats can't un-throw that rock. If the name has genuinely become disparaging, the marketplace will take care of it, people will avoid watching the REDSKINS play, and it will fall into disuse.Attention Surplus Disorder thinks the takings clause applies to trademarks:
This is one of the few cases where the Supreme Court has jurisdiction, since the case it Federal, and it should go there.
What's embarrassing is the amateurish quality of the Democratic revolutionaries.
I would think that the Redskins could take a casualty tax deduction in the mid-single-digit billions of dollars for this “taking”. It is unprecedented.YourAdHere knows Obama is secretly behind this.
The e-mail that Barry sent them demanding this will also disappear mysteriously.Gaffer - this is how it ends!
Watch closely. America is in its end time.sten - it's time for medieval cavalry-based assassinations!

they have no standing in law, so they will start to apply pressure to advertisers and any forms of property they can
these people need to get late night visits by men on horseback riding into their bedrooms wielding a ball & chain
Well, God bless America. At least the “native americans” (all five of them) will not be offended.Ruy Dias de Bivar - this is another Native American genocide!
God forgive me, I hate the Left, but You already know that.
I hate what they do. But, I also believe that You are using them to punish us for turning our backs to You.
These things have to happen, You will do all your pleasure, and it is obvious to even a child Your pleasure is to decimate America. One piece at a time.
God forgive us.
Two hundred years ago there was a move to make the Indian disappear. He was moved to Indian Territory(Oklahoma), his mounds and villages torn down, burial grounds looted. Anything significant was considered made by the mythical Welsh Prince MODOC.Oldeconomybuyer ties this to Obama visiting an Indian reservation last week, which makes us no longer a democracy"
In the 1970s Indians began to make a comeback with silly Mazola commercials, Movies, and statements by actors like Marlon Brando, along with civic disorder like at Wounded Knee in 1973.
Now the American Indian is again disappearing, pushed out of the Sports realm by over zealous Leftists who fear the memory of the Indian may be offensive to Indians when they really are offensive to the Leftists.
This is what a dictator looks like.
Last week the Marxist visited an Indian reservation, this week the Marxist seizes the assets of a privately owned company. Both to suit his political goals.
We are Venezuela.
