In the September-October 2019 issue of IP Litigator, a cross-practice team of attorneys examined a U.S. Supreme Court decision that found the ban on the registration of immoral and scandalous trademarks to be unconstitutional. The authors noted that the decision left open the possibility for Congress to reestablish some form of ban against scandalous marks, if that ban was restricted to their form of expression rather than their viewpoint. 

The authors include IP litigation partner Peter Brody (Washington, D.C.), IP litigation counsel Evan Gourvitz (New York) and strategic transactions counsel Emilia Cannella and Erica Han (both of Boston).
