Can I Trademark a Sports Team Name?

In short: Yes, you can trademark a sports team name. "New York Yankees" is a registered trademark for a line of sports exhibitions. Sports team names often serve as the name of a business. It is considered common practice to trademark the name to prevent abuse or misrepresentation of the business by people who wish to defame the organization or cash in on the team’s success.
