Gordon v. Drape Creative, Inc. (9th Cir. - July 30, 2018)

Were I a teenager or tween or even twenty-something, perhaps I'd know the background of the catch phrases "Honey Badger Don't Care" and "Honey Badger Don't Give A Sh**."

But I'm very much not.

Yet, after today's opinion, I can at least intelligently discuss whether those phrases constitute an expression protected by the federal trademark laws.

(Plus, yes, I actually checked out one of the videos.  Apparently the honey badger does not, indeed, care deeply about a variety of things.)

So take that, millennials.
