Redskins trademark revoked

The Patent office has revoked the trademark of the Washington Redskins.  Because the politically incorrect name had not been removed voluntarily by the organization, the government clearly took a look at what it could do to "fix" the situation. Revoking the patent means potentially lost revenues.  The notion is that the Redskins will have to change their name now. 

Government deciding what the free market  can and should do. And in fact it has done it already. If the name was so egregiously offensive, the team would suffer financially and change it's already. It hasn't.  But your government of busy bodies knows better America. Sleep safely because they are protecting you....
