Queer Registrations

Via NY Lawyer, an article regarding a paralegal’s attempts to challenge a NY State statute banning language that is obscene or intends to ridicule.  The paralegal successfully fought to name a not-for-profit advocacy group QUEER AWARENESS.

U.S. trademark law has a provision that bars marks that disparage.  Marks currently registered include QUEER AS FOLK, QUEERGEAR and QUEERSTOCK.  There are also pending applications for QUEER EYE FOR THE STRAIGHT GUY.
