Brunetti & Beyond: Deciphering the SCOTUS Decision on Scandalous & Immoral Trademarks
Thursday, August 15, 2019
Networking Lunch at Noon
1.5 Hour MCLE at 12:30 pm
In June, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Lanham Act’s Section 2(a) prohibition on federal registration of “immoral or scandalous” trademarks violates the free speech protections of the First Amendment. Our panel will discuss the decision in detail, review prior cases regarding Lanham Act Section 2(a) (including Matal v. Tam), assess implications for businesses using such marks in commerce, and opine on possible legislative revisions in the wake of this landmark ruling.
