The patent office goes out of bounds
in Redskins trademark case

Washington Post, by Jonathan Turley

Original Article

Posted By:DaddyO, 6/22/2014 7:06:08 AM

The decision this past week by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to rescind federal trademark protections for the Redskins may ultimately tip the balance in the controversy over the 80-year-old name of Washington’s football team. If so, that would be a shame. Not because there’s insufficient reason to consider the name “disparaging to Native Americans,” as the patent office determined. Many of us recoil at the reference to skin color as a team identity. The problem is that the Redskins case is just the latest example of a federal agency going beyond its brief to inappropriately insert itself in

Comments:
90% of american indians do not believe "redskins" is offensive.

"How can I help it? How can I help but see what is in front of my eyes? Two and two are four."
"Sometimes, Winston. Sometimes they are five. Sometimes they are three. "

Five redskins were offended by the Redskin´s name... FIVE!!!!

Why do we let a small handful of barking moonbat crazy people dictate what we must and must not do?

This could backfire big time - with no protection, anyone can print a redskins hat, shirt, etc.

Result? More of them.

Since the NFL pools the profits from these licensed products, all teams will be getting less money with no profit coming in from Redskins items.

Whheeeeee!

For 80 years no one complained!

Now we have hypersensitive PC types that wish to not only overturn 80 years of football history, but US history since the first time someone called an indian a red man in this land.

What do they want to be called? Slightly discolored aboriginal Americans?

You see they can´t be called native because they migrated here just like everyone else. Oh, and if you believe in evolution, survival of the fittest, the european invaders to American were fitter and thats why the slightly discolored aboriginal Americans are where they are today.

Sorry, not very PC only truthful today!

As noted in the comments from the article, Oklahoma comes from the Choctaw phrase okla humma, literally meaning red people. Red people, Red skins, hmm.

The USPTO (US Patent and Trademark Office) is the backbone of American exceptionalism.

The USPTO acted stupidly. Will they now pull back on patents that result in higher CO2 levels? They should pay a very high price for undermining American innovation.

The "red" in Redskins is not skin color but the color of the war paint their ancestors put on. And BTW, people of sub Saharan African descent are called, still - I didn´t check my PC meter this morning - Black, without offense. And people of European descent White (pl. note Mr.Turley). The word Redskins is part of mainstream American usage for over two centuries. This business is getting out of hand.

The next to go will be redskin peanuts, the city of Indianapolis, the Apache helicopter, the Pontiac emblem and Arrow sport shirts. Bulls will not be allowed to sit. The phrase, "eat crow" will be way out of bounds. We will also have to remove the word "Blackfeet" from the dictionary to kill two birds with one stone.

The only people who care about this are the Professional Grievance class and white liberals, but I repeat myself. All are wimps so they miss that team names and logos are symbols of pride. The fierce plains Indian warrior who is a Redskin is a tough intrepid fighter. But you´d have to be a real man, or a woman who admires real men, to understand that.

Perhaps the best way to combat this nonsense is to match stupidity with stupidity.

Its not just the Washington Redshins. The Cleveland Indians and Atlanta Braves also must change their names.

The United States should also go to the UN and demand sanctions against the country of India for blatantly denigrating the American Indian. The Indian Ocean must also have its name changed.

We must not even have the appearance of racism!

The actual application of the law doesn´t seem terribly egregious. It´s possible that the law is unconstitutional, but there has been no court ruling on this. There is no right to a trademark, so the grounds for asserting rights violation may not be immediately apparent (maybe first amendment, but not clear).

We honeymooned in NM in 1998. I was examining some crafts and I said something about Native American. The old lady drew herself up and said, "I am NOT Native American - I am an indian." I guess I looked a little befuddled because she then said, "You are a native American. You were born here." (OK, she didn´t know this but I was actually born in Australia)!

the Cleveland Browns were named after the previous owner..Paul Brown. they were going to be called the Cleveland Panthers but the panthers were already being used.
so, here goes..I am so sick of this PC stuff..and the government making people change because of the devotion to a people that were not native to this land.
If the Redskins have to change then so should everything else...Cuyahoga means crooked..so that river should be called..the crooked river..Which would also apply to the New name for Washington Redskins.. Crooked Washinton. Oklahoma could be called..the sunburnt people..
have you ever read the accounts of how the Comanche Indian butchered babies and roasted enemies alive. An article in the dailymail.co.Uk tells the story, and its terrible. the article is about the things that were hiden about the Comanche Indian when Johnny Depp portrayed Tonto in the Lone Ranger.
so if the Redskins have to change their name, then change the name of anything having to do with Indians..they were not the peace loving, one with nature, God like people we are told they were.
So, change the name.how about the Cleveland Savages..
Oh and as a side note..stop the casinos run by the Indians.
all or none.

I am not a doctor, but common sense tells me that the totalitarians are sick sadists. Look at the Hitler/Stalin/Kim/Pol_Pot/Castro and our homegrown crop of government. Their task is beat us, normal people, into submission. In each and every instance - laws, regulations, IRS, dossiers on everyone, FBI, toilet size, bulbs, team name, leader´s name and his skin color idolized! And there are so many minions in this gov´t and it has so much of our money they shoot at us on so many fronts.

In 1976, in Shelbyville, Ind., a city of about 20,000 southeast of Indianapolis, a film premiere was held. The picture was Fellini’s Casanova. A highly conceptual Italian art house flick about sexual deviance was not what this audience was used to; the house, nonetheless, was packed. A local was in it, a 21-year-old everyone knew about but whom few knew well. She now sat nervously waiting for it to start, concerned about what her neighbors were going to think of it, of her. “For his giant work, he even imported a giantess from America,” one news article about the picture had read, a find that had ended director Federico Fellini’s, “worldwide search for

A former Iowa State University scientist who admitted faking lab results to obtain millions in grant money for AIDS research has been charged with four felony counts of making false statements, an indictment filed in federal court shows. Dr. Dong Pyou Han left his job as an assistant professor and a laboratory manager at the university last year after admitting that he spiked rabbit blood with human antibodies that made it appear the animals´ immune systems were reacting to an AIDS vaccine being tested.

Three armed men burst in through a back door of The Pit restaurant on Geer Street about 9 p.m. Sunday, demanding access to the safe. Out front, employees ushered about 20 guests to safety outside. “While our employees cleared out the guests, in the back the robbers were working with a manager to get into the safe,” said Greg Hatem, owner of the restaurant. “They were able to leave with a small cash box.” All in all, Hatem said, the robbers were in the restaurant for about two minutes. During the incident, two employees were hurt. One went to the hospital and was treated and released, he said. The other never sought medical attention.

It took police a quick three days to make an arrest in a horrific, random home invasion in West Columbia last month. But now, some are wondering why the alleged assailant was out of jail in the first place. The woman – police are calling her heroic – was shot numerous times while protecting her 6-year-old daughter from rape by the invader. But the woman managed to secure a vital clue toward the man’s identity. Then, detectives used modern crime-fighting technology – rapid DNA matches and cell-phone locating methods – to seal the ID of the man and track his

The discovery of sunken gold conjures up visions of instant riches: Swiss bank accounts and lazy afternoons on faraway beaches, daiquiris in hand. But the quest to salvage the S.S. Central America — which went down in 1857 in a hurricane off South Carolina carrying 425 souls, as well as thousands of coins, bars and nuggets of California gold — has produced a quarter-century of broken dreams and legal nightmares. The bones of the side-wheeler were discovered in 1988, nearly a mile and a half down. The finder hauled up glittering coins and boasted of treasure worth $1 billion.

But several of our readers had a much more charitable, even forgiving, attitude toward Spencer.

Today is the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster in England. Ninety-six Liverpool fans died and more than 700 were injured in a human crush in the opening minutes of the 1989 FA Cup Semifinal at Hillsborough stadium in Sheffield. Inadequate turnstiles created a bottleneck and a crush of thousands of fans outside the ground on the Liverpool side. Police opened a gate, allowing the fans to enter. Standing room fans were kept in enclosed pens at some stadiums for security purposes. Police did not close the entrance to the already full central pens. Thousands streamed down the central tunnel,

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".) For Republicans hoping to avoid the kind of drama that might derail what looks to be a very good midterm election year, this kind of call is both a nuisance and a trend.

On April 1, the U.S. economy dropped a whopping 2.9 percent for the first three months of the year (no fooling). The American workforce participation rate fell to a 40-year low. One-third of people aged 18-29 have moved back in with their parents. Millions of Americans this summer will enjoy yet another “staycation”: They just can’t afford to go to the beach or the mountains, even for a week — again. (Snip) Forget that the United States is deep into what Mr. Obama dramatically declares a “humanitarian crisis,” that the Middle East is a powder keg about to blow, that Iraq has all but fallen to Islamist terrorists.

President Obama is “absolutely” the most transparent president in history, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Sunday after the White House received a letter from signed by a dozen top journalists’ groups complaining about the administration’s policies toward the media. “There are a number of steps that we´ve taken to give people greater insight into what´s happening at the White House,” Earnest said in an interview with CNN’s “Reliable Sources.” The letter, signed by the Society of Professional Journalists and the Poynter Institute, among others, accuses the White House of "politically driven suppression of news and information about federal agencies."

Professor Stephen Hawking is backing the academic boycott of Israel by pulling out of a conference hosted by Israeli president Shimon Peres in Jerusalem as a protest at Israel´s treatment of Palestinians. Hawking, 71, the world-renowned theoretical physicist and former Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, had accepted an invitation to headline the fifth annual president´s conference, Facing Tomorrow, in June, which features major international personalities, attracts thousands of participants and this year will celebrate Peres´s 90th birthday. Hawking is in very poor health, but last week he wrote a brief letter to the Israeli president to say he

First lady Michelle Obama grabbed the political reins during a speech to the League of United Latin American Citizens in New York City, telling the crowd of admirers not to worry — that her husband wouldn’t wait on Congress to take action on immigration reform. “So make no mistake about it — we have to keep on fighting as hard as we can on immigration,” Mrs. Obama said, to a cheering crowd, Breitbart reported. “And as my husband has said, he’s going to do whatever administrative action it takes to fix this broken system.” Mrs. Obama then vowed that Congress wouldn’t get

Friday on "Democracy Now," Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) attacked his "shameful" Republican colleagues for wanting to change the 2008 child trafficking law so that the children from from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador current streaming across the border in hopes of evading deportation will be treated the same as those from Mexico before approving the $3.7 billion in emergency funding the president has requested. The Illinois Democrat said, "I think it is shameful that in the Congress of the U.S. we see members of Congress engendering and creating fear of children. We should be protecting children, not creating fear of them." Yesterday,

The “ugly American” has gotten a lot uglier over the past few weeks, from the streets of California to the halls of Congress and state houses around the country. A growing number of our fellow Americans have taken on grotesque features, in looks and sounds, in reaction to the thousands of children from Central America who have crossed our borders as they flee poverty and violence in hope for something better. Sadly, the arrival of these youngsters has been greeted by flag-waving, sign-carrying, Bible-thumping and Constitution-quoting citizens demanding that they not be received here and that they be returned immediately to their

In remarks framed as a message to the American public, actor Jon Voight emotionally aired his political grievances for several minutes in a televised statement on Saturday. Those grievances range from (but are not limited to) Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the "targeting" of conservative filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza, illegal immigration, the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case, the treatment of war veterans, the chaos in Iraq and deep reservations about President Obama. "Five years ago, I stated that Obama would take the country apart piece-by-piece, that he would cause a civil war in this country," Voight read on Saturday in a statement on

Inquiring minds wonder if there’s a “G” in the grading repertoire. And that does not stand for “good.” Pollster John Zogby has given President Obama an “F” this week for the White House performance on the global stage, and the researcher has no imminent good news for the president. “Some people have really bad weeks. Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff got an ‘F’ after the nation’s soccer team lost to Germany. But President Obama’s week was just as bad,” Mr. Zogby says. “Israel and the Palestinians are at war again. The president should have visited the U.S.-Mexican border, where so many immigrant children are in danger and so many
