    Section 2(a) of the Trademark Act bars registration of immoral, scandalous, or disparaging trademarks, but application of those terms varies and meanings can shift over time.

    In this program, our expert panel will:

    • Discuss the historical treatment of scandalous and disparaging matter in the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board and federal courts
    • Compare the TTAB decision concerning The Redskins with how the Board has treated other marks in recent cases, including "The Slants" and "Stop the Islamization of America"
    • Provide tips and future strategies for refusals and proceedings involving Section 2(a)
