U.S. patent office cancels Washington Redskins trademarks

Posted:

(WFLX) - The Washington Redskins say they will appeal a ruling from a Federal Trademark Board. It determined the team's nickname is "disparaging of Native Americans", and the team's trademark protections should be canceled.      

The decision puts further financial and political pressure on the Redskins to change the name.
