Only that is obviously not true.
The Redskins will appeal this, and they will probably win on the same basis as before. The facts haven’t changed; only the braying morons in high office have.
But if a ruling like this is somehow allowed to stand, it means that the Government has just figured out another way to appropriate private property without paying for it.
Will, for instance, the estate of legendary NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt have its trademark “The Intimidator” revoked (registration 2092602) because the trademark “offends” somebody?
Or perhaps they will revoke the trademark of Obama for America, Inc, the 2012 logo (registration 3541038). I’ll bet a fair poll would show that a much larger number of people in America are “offended” by that than by the Washington Redskins’ name.
