    Navajo woman wins round in fight to block Redskins’ trademark

    The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office agreed June 18 with a Navajo woman’s claim that the Washington Redskins name is offensive to Native Americans, thus canceling the team’s right to trademark the name.
    The Trademark Trial and Appeal board said that evidence presented by Kayenta resident Amanda Blackhorse and four other plaintiffs showed the word “Redskins” was “disparaging” when it was registered, and the team can no longer hold six different trademarks using the term.
