    Isu is in their full right to revoke the use of their trademark. Norml fails to grasp the first amendment and trademarking rules.

    Can they not advocate and follow their mission without a freakin' shirt? What a joke.

    As a public university, ISU limiting political speech by preventing the use of their trademark by a (self-proclaimed) political issue advocacy group while allowing it for others is certainly murky waters here. Not as clear cut as most people seem to think.

    So Norml wanted to use the ISU logo and ISU said no to use of the logo and ISU ends up on national news for being against free speech? Media reporting part of the story - shocking!

    Iowa State is doing whats smart. Don't get associated with ethical issues.

    Iowa State doesn't have their logo on Free Condom Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday, but they still allow the students to engage in it.

    Where is their free speech being limited? They allow the group. Can the group not fulfill their advocacy without the use of an isu logo? Such a petty waste of time, can't wait to watch it get laughed out of court.

    there is zero first amendment violation.

    Denying use of a trademark because of what the group stands for is definitely questionable. Especially since ISU allowed it, and then later re-wrote a policy after receiving political pressure.

    I dont disagree with your line of thought, but the courts always air on the side of caution when it comes to free speech. I would imagine ISU will lose this battle.
