Fordham University Sports Law Symposium
Stephen Baird, Intellectual Property attorney, served as a panelist at the Fordham Sports Law Symposium, presented by the Fordham University School of Law. Steve participated on the panel “Marooning the Mascot: The Implications of Blackhorse v. Pro-Football,” which covered the implications of the revived trademark suit against the Washington Redskins. Particularly, discussion centered upon the pros and cons of the team's maintenance of their trademark, what the implications of an alteration would be, and the industry implications of lawsuits of this nature. This panel also discussed the trademark issues related in non-contested name or mascot changes, and the results of “rebranding” in professional sports.
