    Los Angeles artist Erik Brunetti is currently challenging the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s decision not to register the trademark for his FUCT clothing line. His application was denied because it “would be perceived by a substantial segment of the public as the equivalent of the profane past participle form of .?.?. perhaps the paradigmatic word of profanity in our language.” This program will provide you with further background on this scandalous case directly from counsel for Applicant in the case of In Re Erik Brunetti, Appeal No. 2015-1109.
