The U.S. Patent Office has denied a patent to “Redskins Hog Rinds” on the grounds that the name is a “derogatory slang,” which bodes poorly for the Washington Redskins’ ongoing legal battle over their name.

In a letter dated Dec. 19, the agency wrote that the name includes content “which may disparage or bring into contempt or disrepute persons, institutions, beliefs, or national symbols,” CBS News reports.

This is bad news for the Washington Redskins, since the same agency will be deciding whether to revoke the trademark on the NFL team’s controversial name. Oneida Indian Nation Representative Ray Halbritter says he hopes the decision will send a message to team owner Dan Snyder and the NFL that the name “Redskins” is a racial slur.
