About the Program
The recent United States Supreme Court decision in Matal v. Tam held the prohibition in Section 2(a) of the Lanham (Trademark) Act on registration of trademarks that are disparaging of ethnic, racial, or social groups to be unconstitutional on First Amendment grounds. Implications of the decision from both trademark registration and First Amendment perspectives will be discussed.

Learn what trademarks may now be registered, what avenues there are to encourage sports teams into altering their nicknames and logos to the extent they offend particular groups, and what the First Amendment implications are for government actions dealing with private speech.
