Redskins fight trademark ban

Redskins fight trademark ban

A federal government decision to cancel the Washington Redskins’ trademark because it may be disparaging infringes on free-speech rights and unfairly singles the team out, lawyers argued in court papers filed Monday.

The team wants to overturn a decision last year by the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board to cancel the Redskins’ trademark on the grounds that it may be offensive to Native Americans. But the team’s attorneys say the law barring registration of disparaging trademarks is unconstitutional under …

Milk industry fights back against ‘anti-dairy folks’

Milk industry fights back against ‘anti-dairy folks’

The league made that move Thursday after …
