Civil Case on REDSKINS Heats Up: Pro-Football, Inc. v. Amanda Blackhorse, et al.1
MARINA LEWIS Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Bunner, LLP
CAROLE BARRETT Barrett IP Law
The protracted legal bactle challenging the registration of various REDSKINS trademarks shows no signs of slowing down or cooling off. Almost a year after a divided Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) panel ordered the cancellation of six trademark registrations for REDSKINS-formative marks owned by the Washington football team of the same name, the parties are once again deep in the thick of a contentious and controversial battle in both the courts of law and public opinion.
