Sharia Trademark Enforcement
It is everywhere, folks, in every aspect of our lives from the big stuff (Major Hasan cover-up) to the minutia (trademark registration).
Take a look at this. Robert and I registered the name Stop Islamization of America for trademark. It was refused — It reads like a page out of Alice in Taqiyaland. The “news” stories they cite would be laughable if it weren’t so lethal.
The real question is – how can you stop something that has already happened and continues apace.
U.S. TRADEMARK APPLICATION NO. 77940881 – STOP THE ISLAMIZATION OF AMERICA
The applied-for mark refers to Muslims in a disparaging manner because by definition it implies that conversion or conformity to Islam is something that needs to be stopped or caused to cease.Â See attached dictionary definition. The proposed mark further disparages Muslims because, taking into account the nature of the services (â€œproviding information regarding understanding and preventing terrorismâ€), it implies that Islam is associated with violence and threats.Â See attached dictionary definition.Â The trademark examining attorney refers to the excerpted articles from the LEXISNEXISÂ® computerized database referencing how many Muslims view terrorists as illegitimate adherents of Islam.Â See attachments.Â Therefore, the suggestion that Islam equates terrorism would be disparaging to a substantial group of Muslims.
an>Accordingly, the applied-for mark is refused under Section 2(a) because it consists of matter which may disparage or bring into contempt or disrepute Muslims and the Islamic religion.
Although applicantâ€™s mark has been refused registration, applicant may respond to the refusal by submitting evidence and arguments in support of registration.
