SCOTUS strikes down ban on immoral or scandalous trademark registration
Abstract: Just two years after ruling that a ban against the registration of disparaging trademarks was a violation of the First Amendment and thus unconstitutional, the U.S. Supreme Court has proven that it wasn’t a fluke. It recently held that a ban against registration of immoral or scandalous trademarks is unconstitutional as well. This article summarizes the case and how the decision implicates previously rejected and pending trademarks found to have violated the bar. Iancu v. Brunetti, No. 18-302, June 24, 2019, U.S.
