I believe the City of Cleveland sued and won to retain the rights to the Browns name which is why when Art Modell moved the franchise to Baltimore he couldn't use the Browns name --- and also couldn't use the Colts (or Stallions as JT points out) because the Irsay's owned the trademark as it relates to professional football teams in the Baltimore area and would have sued.
