Robert Kenney Quoted on Redskins Trademark Decision in Bloomberg BNA’s Patent, Trademark and Copyright Journal®

BSKB partner Robert J. Kenney was quoted in a recent Bloomberg BNA’s Patent Trademark & Copyright Journal® article entitled “Redskins Trademark Rights Are Not Significantly Harmed by Loss of Registrations.” Discussing the recent cancellation order of the Washington NFL team’s federal trademark registrations, Kenney stated “As a practical matter, the actual legal/economic consequences of the decision affirming the cancellation of the Redskins registrations are minimal.” Without registration, he said, “those marks are now based on the lengthy use of the marks in commerce,” something that should not be difficult for the Redskins to establish.
