Offensive Trademarks

Supreme Court upholds offensive trademarks as form of free speech. The Supreme Court ruled Monday that federal trademarks can be registered in most cases even if they are considered derogatory. The decision was a victory for an Asian American dance rock band dubbed The Slants - and, in all likelihood, for the Washington Redskins, whose trademarks were canceled in 2014 following complaints from Native Americans. Ref. USAToday.

Trademarks Offensive

I understand the allowances for freedom of speech but this could get very ticklish when people start to use sacred symbols just to be bad.

Offensive Trademarks History & Civil Business Politics

The thing with free speech is good in all it does to help but you will always have some people who wish to take that a bit further and cause issues. Sometimes I think people need to think about what they are doing. Do you really want that as a trademark? How likely are you going to get good business with something that can be derogatory?

Trademarks Offensive

So, here is what I think about this. Yes, we have the right to free speech and this decision was a good one. We also have the right to vote with our pocketbook. So, when someone does something stupid or offensive, both allowed by the Constitution, we should show them the error of their ways by refusing to buy their stuff, or view their videos, or whatever else it is they want. Just ignore their stupidity.
