IPCopy is proud to present a podcast interview by Keltie Partner, Manuela Macchi,  with Ronald Coleman, widely known in the IP community for successfully leading ‘The Slants’ trade mark case all the way to the US Supreme Court, securing US Federal registration.

The US Supreme Court judgement was handed down in June 2017, and on the path to this landmark ruling, Ronald had to grapple with fundamental principles of the US legal system, such as freedom of speech and the prohibition to register trade marks that are disparaging.

Little over a year from this judgement, we take a look back at the case with Ronald and discuss legacy, insights and ‘behind the scenes’ of the case.

Ronald Coleman is a Member of Mandelbaum Salsburg as well as Chairman of the firm’s Intellectual Property and Brand Management Group. He specialises in commercial litigation with particular emphasis on torts of competition and Intellectual Property aspects of competition law.
