Explicit trademark

done_tmb_PMFA1_WEBWould you be offended when you would see a trademark Pussy Motherfuckers? Trademarks such as Fucking Freezing have been refused earlier on by the OHIM and the application Pussy Motherfuckers remains in the examination status for months now, which tells us that the trademark has been refused, probably because the trademark is against morality.

So, the OHIM thinks that you would be offended. The office is rather prudent with trademarks with explicit language. This policy is  contrary to the policy of national offices who have accepted many trademarks with the words Fuck and Bastard, in France we even noticed a trademark Chicken Fucker (!). Even the Court of Justice told the OHIM in the Fucking Hell case to relax. In Vain.
