Here it is, the Infamous Fuck Brief. The filings are all public record and are freely available on the USPTO website. Nevertheless, anyone’s convenience, here they are.
- The USPTO’s initial rejection of the application.
- The initial appeal to the Examiner – this is the one that sparked the articles.
- The USPTO’s second refusal.
- The appeal to the TTAB – Not as fun to read as the appeal to the Examiner, but this is our brief of legal arguments for the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.
Some nice ink on this case
