'SCANDALOUS MARKS'
ONE YEAR LATER

This Communities program will explore the impact of Iancu v. Brunetti,
which held that barring registration of trademarks deemed "scandalous"
or "immoral" is unconstitutional. Speakers will also address the U.S. Patent
and Trademark Office's new response - refusing scandalous marks on the
novel ground that "commonplace words" must not be allowed.
