Oneida Nation challenges Oneida Nation over use of 'Oneida' trademarks

The Oneida Nation is taking on the Oneida Nation in hopes of resolving a trademark dispute.

The Oneidas in Wisconsin are seeking the cancellation of "Oneida" trademarks registered to their relatives in New York. A petition was filed with the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, a federal agency, on Wednesday.

"Oneida Nation, Wisconsin filed the petition because it believes that both tribes should be free to use ONEIDA, ONEIDA INDIAN NATION, ONEIDA NATION and similar terms reflecting their common and shared cultural heritage and history," the Oneidas in Wisconsin said in a press release.
