    They are supporting the LEGAL use of marijuana.

    Re: way to go ISU

    If you saw this on fox news they completely took it out of context. I was watching and they mentioned nothing about the ISU logo, they just said that ISU was banning these people from wearing shirts with a marijuana leaf on it.

    ISU is not a government entity that makes laws. This is as stupid as saying that someone who is talking on their phone during a movie at a movie theatre is having their free speech rights violated by being asked to leave for refusing to stop.

    they are free to do with their logo as they see fit. It is ISU's property not in the public domain.

    dumb.

    Once again, denying use of a trademark is not impeding upon freedom of speech.

    First of all, not allowing someone to talk on a phone is no where near an issue of freedom of speech. Freedom of speech does not mean you should be able to talk wherever you want whenever you want.

    Second, ISU is a public university, not private. They most defiantly are in the public domain.

    They are essentially saying, as a university, students advocating for one political issue aren't going to be supported, while others supporting less touchy issues are going to be receive support from the school. You can't deny that's discrimination. This group is no different than any other group advocating for a political cause. They aren't advocating anything illegal.

    Re: way to go ISU

    What it will come down to is if they sold the shirt for profit or not. If they sold the shirt for profit it becomes a commercial use of the trademark and then it is not protected by the first amendment. If they didn't then it is more likely to be allowed. However, ISU could argue that they allowed the group to use the ISU name just not the trademarked image, in accordance with their trademark guidelines.

    A policy that specifically was made to dis-allow this particular group to use its logo is an issue of free speech. The policy was not there until this group came along, and it was wrote specifically respecting this group.

    Someone finally said the correct term. This could possibly be seen as discrimination. But ISU is not stopping their message or their ability to spread it.

    See above. Not free speech related at all.

    The entire banned design list:



    And this clause is also in there, and I doubt it was a new one:

    The discrimination of a particular advocacy or religious group's message is a freedom of speech issue.

Then, after political pressure once a picture of the shirt was published in the DM Register, they amended their policy specifically to stop this group's use of the logo. I would argue denying it use based off that policy is not even right as the group is in no way promoting the use of an illegal drug or drug paraphernailia. They are advocating for a change of law, and I dont see that as being illegal or unhealthful.

    But not their logos or insignias. This was my point. The usage of their logos, etc. are not part of the public domain. So denying use thereof is not a free speech issue, like what I was trying to state. So you were right, and proving my point.
