Vidal v. Elster

In Vidal v. Elster, a man is suing the U.S. Patent and Trade Office (PTO) for refusing to register his slogan “Trump too small,” which he uses on T-shirts and other merchandise mocking Donald Trump. Mr. Elster argues that the PTO is violating his First Amendment right to free speech by denying him a trademark on his slogan.
