    Obviously, we wouldn't want to let this catch on - people actually not giving a damn about political correctness. It could lead to....humor.

    As soon as "they" start citing so-called "Morality", I tune out. Idiots.

    Screw the government. The band should call themselves "The Slants" anyway. So what if they can't 'trademark' it. They can still copyright their music and performances, if they're any good they can still make a bazillion bucks, and it's not likely a copy cat trying to steal their name would get away with it for long.

    All they need to do is register their business name "The Slants" with the state business regulation agency as an LLC, and they should be covered. It usually can be done online.

    Soooo...when will unelected bureaucrats go after rappers, (notice I didn't ay rap "artists") for dropping n bombs every other word. I thought the N word was worse than child molestation while juggling Gerbils with the PC crowd.

    My gift to you Slantey: www.slopedoper.com Just the thing if you ever find yourself at war with an Asian opponent. Never thought of the name for their product having any racial connotations until this thread, and now I've got the giggles.
