Supreme Court 'FUCT' Trademark Ruling Paves Way For Thunderpussy Trademark

We were elated after hearing about the decision in favor of Brunetti this morning. For us this has always been a First Amendment issue. It’s not just a victory for one man with a clothing brand or for a misunderstood band, but a triumph of free speech. Thank you Simon Tam and The Slants for laying the groundwork, and thank you to the supreme court for upholding the value of free speech in the Brunetti case. Much gratitude to the US government for recognizing that there is value in all forms of expression including those that are “scandalous and immoral.” This is a huge step forward! BUT it does not mean that we will automatically be granted our trademark. In fact, it is possible for the USPTO to rule against us on other grounds if they so choose. But the ruling certainly gives us hope!
