Is ‘FUCT’ Too Scandalous to Trademark? SCOTUS Hears Oral Arguments

Recommended Posts

How can a word that doesn't officially exist in the language yet be a banned/untrademark-able word?

apparently pronunciation and "perception" are taken into account at the trademark office....which is some old bullshit, since both pronunciation and "perception" is up to opinion and not fact

 

the trademark office is literally saying opinion matters in law

Pronunciation... I guess there's that tomato/potato song but I believe the majority of words are meant to be said a certain way that is not up to opinion?

I'll be waiting to see how this turns out, more for the argument over language and its use.

Brunetti spells out FUCT like F-U-C-T when he says the name of his brand...or he calls it Friends U Can't Trust

 

by that defense, he's not pronouncing it "fucked" and that the trademark office is basing their denial purely on opinion

Yeah but he spells it Fuct, doesn't sound like a great argument on his part.

These guys will be waiting/watching:

I believe its biased from the administration since they say a "moral" trademark is better for the public but then turn around and sell "trump that bitch" tee shirts

 

I'm not targeting the president, i'm just saying if we are to believe that morality is the center of the argument, it better be applied to both sides
