WASHINGTON: None of the Supreme Court's justices wanted to say the four-letter word.The high court was discussing a trademark case Monday involving a Los Angeles-based fashion brand "FUCT". Justice Stephen Breyer called it "the word at issue".The case has to do with a portion of federal law that says officials should not register trademarks that are "scandalous" or "immoral". Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg noted that the office has refused to register trademarks both by saying something is scandalous and, ironically, too confusingly similar to something that is already registered.Two years ago, the justices unanimously invalidated a related provision of federal law that told officials not to register disparaging trademarks.
