“Snyder’s Last Stand,” DRI Today February 26, 2014

“A lot has been said and written lately about the [Washington] Redskins nickname. Everyone seems to have an opinion about it. However, appeals to Redskins owner Daniel Snyder's heartstrings seems to have fallen on deaf ears; he’s defiantly stated that he will ‘never’ change the name of his beloved team. He may not have to — the courts may do it for him,” writes Jason L. Ederer of Goldberg Segalla’s Sports and Entertainment and Intellectual Property Practice Groups.

In this article for the Defense Research Institute’s DRI Today blog, Jason analyzes a recent appeal to the Trademark Trial and Appeals Board (TTAB) by six young Native American plaintiffs arguing “that a ‘substantial composite of [Native Americans] are affected by the ‘Redskins’ marks continued use in commerce.” 

The article is also excerpted on Goldberg Segalla’s Sports and Entertainment Law Insider blog, along with a link to the full feature. Jason is a frequent blog contributor.
