Nestlé loses bid for EU protection of its KIT KAT four-finger bar shape. After nearly a decade of attempting to trademark the KIT KAT product shape, which was heavily opposed by the rival owners of Cadbury, the European Court of Justice ruled against Nestlé, concluding that the shape was not sufficiently distinctive for trademark protection. In reaching its conclusion, the EU's top court has declared that in order to be considered distinctive enough to qualify for #trademark protection, the product must be proven "iconic" across all markets of the EU, not just some. #kitkat #trademarkattorney

The Supreme Court has struck down provisions of federal #trademark law barring disparaging trademarks that offend. We've been following the case of The Slants for years in our monthly newsletter, and it seems to have finally reached conclusion this week. The #SCOTUS found that the federal government violated the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment by refusing to register trademarks that officials consider disparaging. The Court concluded that "Speech may not be banned on the ground that it expresses ideas that offend."

This week's ruling could clear the path for the Washington Redskins to maintain their trademark rights in the name, REDSKINS, which the government canceled on the grounds that the mark is disparaging of Native Americans.

Several companies have applied to #trademark the term #fakenews. The proposed uses range from a television program to board games and lots of clothing. How is this a thing?
