Supreme Court to Hear Case on Trademarking of ‘Trump Too Small’ Phrase, with Far-Reaching Implications for the First Amendment

The Supreme Court will hear a case involving the trademark of the phrase "Trump Too Small" on t-shirts and hats, which is a double entendre referring to a joke made by Senator Marco Rubio during the 2016 Republican presidential primary debate. The case, Vidal v. Elster, will decide whether California lawyer Steve Elster can register the trademark, and could have far-reaching implications for the First Amendment if the Supreme Court rules in favor of Elster. The Supreme Court has not yet set a date for the hearing.
