RULING: Red Skins trademark cancelled in federal court ruling

buzzz worthy. . .



A federal judge on Wednesday ordered the cancellation of the Washington Redskins' trademark registration, ruling that the team name may be disparaging to Native Americans.

Lee emphasized in his 70-page ruling that the organization is still free to use the name if it wishes - the team would just lose some legal protections that go along with federal registration of a trademark.

Lee ruled the team culd still use the name but may not have the same legal protections that go along with federal registration of a trademark.

Jeff Lopez, lawyer for the Native Americans who challenged the team's name, said he expects the Redskins to appeal the ruling to the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond. But he said that Lee's ruling was an across-the-board victory for his clients and that he is confident it will be upheld.
