Simon Tam wanted to change the world by creating an Asian American band called The Slants. Little did he know, that the music would take him from the studio to the state penitentiary, and the stage to the Supreme Court. Hear this fascinating tale of how the worlds of civil rights and trademark law collided when an ordinary trademark application turned into an 8 year journey for self-identity and blurred the lines between art and activism. This deeply personal story shares the client perspective of a landmark case and addresses important issues such as inclusion in the law, freedom of speech, and the power of persistence.
