(AUDIO) The Redskins Losing Their Trademark Could Be Major Ammunition for a Name Change

Trademark lawyer Joel Feldman joined Booger and Marc to discuss the impact of the Redskins losing their trademark rights to their team name.

Feldman said if the Redskins appeal isn’t successful and they lose their trademark rights, the biggest effect will be the Redskins will lose the circled R by their name. However, from a PR standpoint this could be a big deal. This is a big piece of ammunition for those seeking a name change.

Feldman said that none of the 6 registrations cancelled yesterday cover merchandise they only cover entertainment services.
