Moskin Discusses SCOTUS Decision on Scandalous Trademarks

25 June 2019 News

Partner Jonathan Moskin was quoted in an Intellectual Property Magazine article, “SCOTUS rules in favour of ‘fuct’ mark,” about a U.S. Supreme Court decision holding that a federal ban on immoral or scandalous trademarks violates the First Amendment.

Moskin said that Erik Brunetti, who has sought federal registration for the trademark “FUCT’ in connection with a line of clothing, “should now be able to register” his claimed mark. But he also said he doubted Brunetti’s products “will ever attain wide commercial acceptance.”
