The Washington Redskins are currently appealing a June 2014 decision by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that stripped the franchise of its trademark protection. In canceling the trademark, the office called the NFL team's name "disparaging to Native Americans." The move, which if upheld on appeal would prevent the team from having exclusive right to the trademark, comes after leaders in Congress and President Barack Obama have come out against the name over the past year.
