Justices raise doubts over law barring offensive trademarks (The Associated Press)

In a First Amendment clash over a law barring offensive trademarks, the Supreme Court on Wednesday raised doubts about a government program that favors some forms of speech but rejects others that might disparage certain groups. The justices heard arguments in a dispute involving an Asian-American band called the Slants that was denied a trademark because the U.S. Patent and Trademark office said the name is offensive to Asians. Justice Elena Kagan reflected the concerns of several justices when she said government programs are not supposed to make a distinction based on viewpoint.

U.S. Supreme Court justices fret over offensive trademarks (Reuters)

(Recasts with quotes, details from arguments) By Andrew Chung WASHINGTON, Jan 18 (Reuters) - Supreme Court justices walked a tightrope on Wednesday over government approval of offensive trademarks, expressing concern about endorsing racial slurs in brands and slogans while also worrying about protecting only positive words. The eight justices heard arguments in a case involving a Portland, Oregon-based Asian-American dance-rock band called The Slants that was denied a trademark on their name because the government deemed it offensive to people of Asian descent. The case, one of the most closely watched of the court's current term, could impact another high-profile dispute over the government's cancellation of the trademarks of the Washington Redskins of the National Football League for disparaging Native Americans.

U.S. Supreme Court hears dispute over offensive trademarks (Reuters)

U.S. Supreme Court justices on Wednesday appeared concerned about allowing federal trademarks for racial slurs in a case involving an Asian-American rock band called The Slants that could impact the high-profile dispute over the name of the NFL's Washington Redskins. The band's legal dispute began when the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office refused to grant trademark protection for The Slants' name in 2013, saying it was offensive to people of Asian descent. The Redskins separately challenged the law on free speech grounds, but the Supreme Court declined to take up that case.
