We turn to the ongoing controversy over the name of the Washington NFL team, in light of last week’s cancellation of the team’s trademark registration by the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.

Joining us are: Mark Trahant, an independent print and media journalist; Suzan Shown Harjo, (Cheyenne and Hodulgee) President of The Morning Star Institute, a national Native rights organization, columnist for Indian Country Today Media Network, and past Executive Director of the National Congress of American Indians; and Julie A. Hopkins, partner at Tydings and Rosenberg LLP where she practices Intellectual Property and Technology Law.
