And a huge thank you to Ted, and even more so to you John, for your continued dedication and outstanding service to our U.S. Trademark community. As I have said, time and time again, you my friend are a ROCK STAR IP lawyer.

Concerning of Constitutional Issues, the First amendment, the report stated "For only the second time in the history of the republic, the Supreme Court invoked the constitution to invalidate an intellectual property statute,..."

May I know what's the first case the Supreme Court invalidated the statue for unconstitutional ?

Thanks and regards,

The original trademark statute was held unconstitutional because it did not require use in commerce regulable by Congress. The later trademark acts were okay under the Commerce Clause of the Constitution.
