      The other thread is going to be locked by the OP so we needed a new place to discuss it.Google "Common Law" or read the FAQ's on the US Patent offices site on it. You know the same organization that started this thread."What are “common law” rights?Federal registration is not required to establish rights in a trademark.  Common law rights arise from actual use of a mark and may allow the common law user to successfully challenge a registration or application."http://www.uspto.gov/faq/trademarks.jsp"If a sports fan decides to produce and sell Washington Redskins gear without obtaining advance permission from the team, and the gear creates a false representation that it originated from the NFL’s Washington Redskins organization, then that fan may be in violation of improperly benefiting from the use of the team’s common law protected trademark and be forced to pay damages related to the infringing use."http://www.forbes.com/sites/darrenheitner/2014/06/18/loss-of-redskins-trademark-registration-is-overblown/http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/dc-sports-bog/wp/2014/06/18/todays-ruling-does-not-mean-you-can-open-your-own-redskins-merchandise-shop/

      Any Native Americans that post here have a say on this?  Has this been swept under the rug for years now?  I’m sure Native Americans have been decrying this name for years, yes?Hmmm.

      "The board also pointed to research that found at least 30 percent of American Indians surveyed found the name offensive."Since when is 30 percent a majority.

      That’s communism though.By definition, communism means "perfect world/society."But who's "perfect world?" Yours? ..someone else's? It can't be done, and we've seen it before.

      Let's say everyone with the username ktownbuc47 has to pay 500 dollar membership fees and the majority agrees with that notion.You sure majority rule is the best option?

      Here’s a thought, why not change the name to one of the native american tribes that actual lived in the DC/Maryland area? Then they could keep the logo, maybe change the skin tone and keep it moving.
