#774: Unspeakable Trademark
Fri 1:17 PM
You can name your business whatever you want. But the government won’t register it as a trademark if it thinks it’s offensive. It gets weird when you try to decide what is too offensive to trademark.
Interesting episode…until you realize they never once consider the ramifications of the N-word. It’s a lot more cut & dry than the terms that do get covered here — and A LOT harder to defend in the same contexts. Maybe that’s why they left it out? Because it’s too indefensible?
