Are you a Clarence Thomas or a Ruth Bader Ginsburg? – by “Ryan W”

Are you a Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a Clarence Thomas or an Elena Kagan?? Now you can rep your favorite Supreme Court Justice with a JUSTICE SIGNATURE mug. This week’s topic of Trademarks and Brands on the internet got me interested in names— more specifically signatures— and their potential for use in a visual identity. Signatures are generally not trademark-able, and the visual language used on supreme court documents is in the public domain, as it was created by government employees. Yalies should definitely show some Sonia Sotomayor pride by drinking their morning coffee from a Justice Signature mug, featuring Justice Sotomayor’s *real* signature.
