U.S. Appeals Court Rules on Offensive Trademarks That Disparage Ethnic, Religious Groups
Pam Geller and her crazy followers discover that Section 2(a) of the Lanham Act doesn’t allow federal registration of a trademark that is deemed disparaging or offensive. The law itself has been controversial for many decades but courts have repeatedly held that not being granted a federal trademark registration is not an abridgment of the First Amendment. A non-registered trademark can still be used by the owner for their goods or services and can still be enforced in a court. Geller and her ranting nimrods feel the USPTO and the Federal courts just cowered to Islamic radicals.
These people are really nuts.
