Redskins’ intractable trademark troubles — or sportswriters’?

Originally posted 2012-01-04 11:22:31. Republished by Blog Post PromoterI’ve been following the REDSKINS trademark travails since forever. Well, they’re not over. Or are they? Live with me in real-time, real-life blogging time. I got excited by a link on my Google alert for trademark news, to this story in the Washington Post: As Redskins’ struggles [...]

Redskins decision: The present judges the past

I’ve been writing about the dispute over the REDSKINS trademark on this blog more or less since the beginning of the blog itself. Today a new chapter has been written — or rewritten.  The TTAB has ruled and, not particularly surprisingly, the NFL team called the REDSKINS has been deemed, nunc pro tunc, to have [...]

Redskins redux 2

Originally posted 2009-06-09 12:37:25. Republished by Blog Post PromoterI didn’t have a chance to mention that last month, the order denying the legal challenge to the Washington Redskin’s use of its trademark American Indian logo was upheld. Now I have a chance! And do the unhappy Indians have a chance?  They think they do. UPDATE: [...]

Redskins redux

Originally posted 2006-08-09 23:33:11. Republished by Blog Post Promoter Remember the Washington Redskins trademark tussle? CNBC reports that it’s back — again — and better than ever. This time the focus is an interesting technical tactic related to an aspect of the case involving the equitable doctrine of laches: [T]he U.S. District Court of the [...]

Football Redskins live to fight another day

Originally posted 2008-09-02 00:01:43. Republished by Blog Post PromoterThis story won’t die — especially judging from the prominence of related words among search terms that reach this blog.  The latest, which we missed when it came out in July and we were otherwise engaged, is that the NFL’s Washington Redskins again prevailed in a lawsuit [...]

Standards? We Don’t Need No … er … Stinkin’ Standards

Originally posted 2005-12-22 23:56:10. Republished by Blog Post PromoterThere will always be an England, I guess, but the land once known for its stiff upper lip seems to be slouching along with the rest of us toward that slack-jawed permissiveness so popular among us Western infidels. The issue, of course, is FCUK. We first blogged [...]

Politically incorrect trademarks, continued

Bad feelings from (not so?) long ago get played out across the China Straits. Just how much should trademark registration reflect personal, national, or ethnic sensibilities? This question continues to linger.  But not in China. UPDATE:  Looking for a post about the TTAB’s Redskins decision maybe?

Political Correctness Trademark Battle Continues

We haven’t heard the last of the fight over the Washington Redskins trademark fight. The AP reports that the earlier decision rejecting the challenge based partly on laches has been reversed in part. American Indian representatives don’t like the trademarks because “they are disparaging and bring Native Americans into disrepute.” Six and ten last season? [...]
