1 min

World Trademark Review, in the lead story of its June 19, 2014 global e-newsletter, quoted Venable partner Andrew Price on the implications of the recent Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) decision that six federal trademark registrations of the Washington Redskins NFL team must be cancelled for being "disparaging toward Native Americans."

Price said that if the TTAB decision is upheld on appeal, “this case could incentivize the use of trademark law to try to ‘right’ perceived social wrongs that are communicated through brands.”
