U.S. Patent Office Cancels Redskins Trademarks For Being 'Disparaging To Native Americans'

The United States Patent and Trademark Office has cancelled six of the Washington Redskins' trademark registrations, because they "were disparaging to Native Americans at the respective times they were registered."

The agency ruled Wednesday in a case brought by five Native Americans, who sought cancellation of the team's registrations by arguing that the trademarks violated the prohibition of the "registration of marks that may disparage persons or bring them into contempt or disrepute," as the agency wrote in its ruling.

"We decide, based on the evidence properly before us, that these registrations must be cancelled because they were disparaging to Native Americans at the respective times they were registered," the agency wrote.

2) More political correctness BS.

Who started all of this? Did the "native americans" complain? If they dont care than who is it offending? I'm pretty sure killing them by the thousands, forcing them onto reservations and screwing them over for 100+ years was in no way offensive. They are people that a legitimate reason to complain.

You obviously dont understand that "words hurt". Who they hurt, i dont know, because native americans all over the country have said they dont give a squaw. But just another example of a select few in government deciding that they know better than everyone else, and believe they have the right to tell everyone how to think, feel, and act.

I mean, just like the NY times showing graphic pictures of Iraqi police being executed on the front page is OK... but telling an abusive papparazzi to "suck my dick, faggot" in a "fuck you asshole way" as opposed to an "I dont like homosexuals way" requires a tearful fake apology so your acting career isnt ruined.

Stick and stones may break bones, but names are worse than Hitler.

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.
