Carrie Webb Olson was featured in a podcast, "On Slants and 'Skins: Supreme Court may tackle 'offensive' trademarks," in Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly. In the podcast, she discusses the significance of the recent trademark cases involving The Slants and The Redskins. The Slants, a band, recently won before the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals. However, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected the Redskins' bid to leapfrog the Court of Appeals to have its case considered along with The Slants case to retain their trademarks with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to weigh in on the case sometime this term.
