This week the Supreme Court struck down part of a law that bans offensive trademarks, ruling in favor of an Asian-American rock band called the Slants and giving a major boost to the Washington Redskins in their separate legal fight over the team name. Trademark office spokesman Paul Fucito said officials are reviewing the court’s ruling and plan to issue further guidance on how they will review trademark applications going forward.

In a recent radio interview with The TJ Show, Jon M. Garon, J.D., NSU’s Dean of Shepard Broad College of Law addressed the issues regarding trademarks, first amendment rights and possibly offensive names.
