The Library has acquired four prints of SLANT art, created by members of a musical group composed of persons of Asian descent that had been party to a trademark disparagement suit. Tam applied to register the mark "The Slants," but the examining attorney refused on the basis of disparagement and the Board affirmed. The Federal Circuit, in an en banc decision, reversed. The Supreme Court affirmed the decision of the Federal Circuit.
Stop by the library's circulation desk area to see the new display highlighting law and agriculture. We have a surprisingly large amount of material - 19th century treatises available electronically and recent monographs. Oh and friendly plastic animals to make the display 10% cooler than your average food law display.
