Episode 43 - Native American-Washington Redskins Trademark Dispute

 

In this episode, I discuss the recent dispute between Amanda Blackhorse, a member of the Native American community, and other plaintiffs who have petitioned to have the Washington Redskins trademark be revoked, as the term "redskin" is a derogatory term directed at Native Americans.  I spend some time discussing case law and statutes on this issue and how Ms. Blackhorse's case may proceed.

Be sure to follow me from May 15th to May 18th while I'm in Atlanta, GA for the 2013 Sports Lawyers Association Conference.  Follow @LawAndBO and @ailiakostas on Twitter for my live-tweets from the event.

See you all on June 9th for Season 4 of LABO!!!
