If you haven’t heard, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has ruled and THE SLANTS trademark has won. Section 2(a) has been invalidated with respect to “disparaging” trademarks.
We represented The Slants at Archer & Greiner, P.C. The appellate team consisted of John Connell, Joel MacMull, and our former colleague Darth Newman.
Winning this was nice. It appears that our work here is probably not yet done. But I will write more, however.
