ALEXANDRIA, VA (WTVB) The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has canceled six federal trademark registrations of the Washington Redskins, calling the football team's nickname "disparaging to Native Americans." The trademark attorney for the Redskins said the team will appeal Wednesday’s ruling. The team's trademark registrations will remain valid during the appeal process. Five Native Americans filed a complaint to the Trademark Board in 2006, and a hearing was held in March 2013. The board also canceled the registrations in 1999, but a federal judge overturned that decision in 2003. Redskins owner Dan Snyder has remained defiant in the face of pleas to change the team name.
