US Patent Office Strips The Redskins of Their Federal Trademark. You Know What That Means? GET YOUR BARSTOOL REDSKIN TSHIRTS WHILE THEY'RE HOT!
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Patent Office has ruled the Washington Redskins nickname is “disparaging of Native Americans” and that the team’s federal trademarks for the name must be canceled. The 2-1 ruling comes after a campaign to change the name has gained momentum over the past year. The team doesn’t immediately lose trademark protection and is allowed to retain it during an appeal. The decision means that the team can continue to use the Redskins name, but it would lose a significant portion of its ability to protect its financial interests. If others printed the name on sweatshirts, apparel, or other team material, it becomes more difficult to go after people who use it without permission.
So the Redskins logo and trademark has been cancelled by the Government huh? BOOM SHAKALAKA! Everything is coming up Pageviews! Seriously this is a smut peddler, tshirt makers wet dream. WAKE UP NATE! It’s chaos in the streets in the DMV. You don’t think I hired you because of your good looks and propensity to kidnap women do you? Fuck no. I saw this coming a mile away. I knew it was only a matter of time till the Government canceled the Redskins trademark and I had to be there when they did. Free Redskin Shirts for everybody! And by free I mean 24 bucks a pop! Oh and if you think it’s racist or don’t like it then don’t buy it. Bingo bango problem solved! Now somebody do me a favor and cue the music!
PS – Find me a better, more fair country than the US. Sure we’ll steal all the Indians land and murder the shit out of them, but god forbid a football team which has had the same name for 100 years tries to keep it then we got to bat for them like you read about. Who cares if stripping the trademark goes against everything that Capitalism and this Country stands for? Nobody treads on the Native Americans unless it was us in the beginning. Now we’re boys.
