Sex, Drugs, and Rock ‘n’ Roll at the Trademark Office

This past June, in Icanu v. Brunetti, the U.S. Supreme Court held that the First Amendment requires the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (“PTO”) to accept registration of “immoral” or “scandalous” trademarks. As a result, Erick Brunetti may now register the trademark for his clothing line: FUCT. The Brunetti decision came only two terms after the Supreme Court ruled in Matal v. Tam that a “disparaging” trademark, THE SLANTS, be registered on behalf of the Portland-based band of the same name. Fo...

"The Supreme Court on Friday agreed to hear its first abortion case since President Trump’s appointments of two justices."

Adam Liptak reports (at the NYT).The case [June Medical Services v. Gee] concerns a Louisiana law that its opponents say would leave the state with only one doctor in a single clinic authorized to provide abortions. And it is very likely to yield an unusually telling decision because, in 2016, the court struck down an essentially identical Texas law.The vote in the 2016 decision [Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt] was 5 to 3, with Justice Anthony M. Kennedy joining the court’s four-member libe...

What Business Leaders Can Learn from JFK’s Powerful Speech that Brought Us to the Moon

Guest post from Dick Richardson: A simple definition of leadership is “Leadership is influencing others to do what they would not do if left to their own accord.” Consider the most memorable speeches meant to persuade people: Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1963 “I have a dream…” speech, Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address and John F. Kennedy’s “We choose to go to the moon” speech at Rice University. What made these speeches so persuasive was not necessarily their oration, but their v...

8 movie franchises that tried to copy Marvel's cinematic universe strategy — and how they fared at the box office

Empirical SCOTUS: So happy together

With many decisions still to come in the next month or so, the Supreme Court has already started to define itself in the post-Kennedy era. Certain patterns have emerged in the justices’ voting that distinguish this court from past courts. We are also beginning to see how the newest justices and President Donald Trump’s appointees – Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh — are in some ways similar and in others quite distinct. This term began with significant expectations among conservatives a...
