And just a day after this case - Seems the Redskins are now able appeal the above decision.

The Supreme Court Just Overhauled the U.S. Patent Regime. Here’s What It Means.

Still a major head scratcher as to why they let the Warriors TM drop. Classic Snyder, always fumbling around.

People would say the Warriors had Native Imagery and was unacceptable too. Even if they didn’t have a Native themed logo someone would bitch about it.

Warriors is a pretty generic term. Get rid of the Indian logo and Warriors can mean a bunch of things. I doubt that's why they suddenly dropped the TM after having it for many years.

But it does seem that WTF is the choice given the info in this story.

I don't really think they'd let such a massive hint about the name choice leak out.
Again, they talked again and again about the long renaming process etc... they're just protecting their options IMO.

Probably a case of the info being public so they couldn't stop it from leaking even if they wanted to.

I don't think it's the final choice, if they're smart they should be trying to TM multiple names

Well that is the point if they had filed for other names it would have leaked since as noted it would be in the public domain. Given they apparently haven't tried to patent another name it appears (to me at least) that WFT is the choice.

Or it means they haven’t decided yet….

They are using and marketing WFT this year, so they would be dumb not to try to trademark it, not to mention that they were Division Champs last year so getting WFT trademarks are already a bit behind the curve.

Jason Wright: The Washington Football Team will announce new name and logo in early 2022

Thank goodness it won't be The WFT. IF it was, they could announce it now.
