Do You Really Want to Go There?

Owner of the Washington Redskins, Pro-Football Inc., filed a lawsuit seeking to overturn the USPTO’s cancellation of its “Redskins” trademark on the grounds that the term is disparaging to Native Americans. The Pro-Football lawsuit claims that the Trademark Office’s decision is “replete with errors of fact and law” and is unconstitutional.

One advantage of attending a baseball game is that when the home team is ahead in the ninth inning, they end the game and everyone goes home. In football, despite how far behind a team is, both teams play out the rest of time on the clock. Hasn’t the clock run out on this? Is this really a fight worth fighting? And won’t Pro-Football just end up red-faced and embarrassed?
