Redskin’s Trademark Wars
We normally avoid politics around here like the plague! Just tell us what the rules are and entrepreneurs will play the game. We just want to know the rules. And it seems like the rules were changed last week when the US Patent and Trademark Office revoked the Redskin’s Football team trademark. We have two repeat guests with us to shed some light on the story, a politics expert and a lawyer. Alan Butler is the Founder of our home network, The Liberty Express Radio Network, and hosts Butler on Business every weekday morning. Vincent Russo was on the show a week ago to talk about the Georgia crowd funding exemption law, a law he wrote himself.
