Pride Month 2024

In celebration of Pride Month 2024, we highlight the importance of Michael Goodyear‘s article “Queer Trademarks” https://lnkd.in/dd7Cjqup

This pivotal work examines the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court decisions in Matal v. Tam and Iancu v. Brunetti on the registration of LGBTQ+-oriented trademarks.

These landmark decisions have facilitated the reappropriation of slurs by marginalized communities, transforming symbols of hate into badges of pride.

For IP professionals, this signifies a profound shift in trademark law, emphasizing inclusivity and the empowerment of diverse identities.

Let’s continue to support and protect the valuable expressions of all communities in the intellectual property realm.
