TM Win for Dykes on Bikes

The San Francisco Women's Motorcycle Contingent, otherwise known as 'Dykes on Bikes', has successfully defended their right to trademark their name after a man challenged the trademark, complaining that the term 'dykes on bikes' was offensive to men, scandalous and immoral. This isn't the first time the organization has had to fight for its name; the U.S. Patent and Trademark office originally rejected their attempt gain a trademark on the grounds that the term 'dyke' was offensive to lesbians.
