Washington’s football team registrations cancelled

If you didn’t get the link from five other places, here it is.  (It turns out that today was a bad day to wear shorts to the office; it’s not the best outfit for being interviewed by a suited TV reporter.)

My contributions: a reminder that Renna v. County of Union has some very important things to say about the lack of protection for marks under sec. 43(a) when those marks are not registrable under sec. 2.

Also, a picture from my collection: I got this from a yard sale; the guy who made them was forced to discontinue them due to threats from the team.  (Object in center of card is an Indian-head nickel.)  You can see Bad Frog Beer hanging out behind the card.
