David Yerushami argues, “....more alarming is that as part of its defense, the USPTO is insinuating that our clients are bigots because they protested the construction of the Ground Zero Mosque. This ploy is all the more egregious because, as a government agency, the USPTO is tasked with upholding the rule of law as opposed to engaging in a hyper-politicized and patronizing advocacy to protect Islam from the terror committed in the name of Islam by self-described Islamic jihadis.”
Robert Muise, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, commented: “This case is a classic Orwellian example of the government trying to control language for the purpose of maintaining its agenda of political correctness. Indeed, the TTAB ignored the overwhelming evidence that the only public use of ‘Islamisation’ is as a description of an Islamist political agenda to replace secular democracy with Islamic religious law. To argue contrary is simply inconsistent with reality.”
