Big Tech and Free Speech

Ron Coleman is an intellectual property attorney who rose to fame defending the trademark of the band “The Slants”, which was won at the Supreme Court. He is now defending individuals like Gavin McInnes and Laura Loomer who have been kicked off various social media platforms (aka “deplatformed”). As a pioneer in how the law affects brands, the internet and free speech, Ron joins Carol Roth to talk about the evolution and challenges of free speech online and what the government should or shouldn’t be doing about “big tech”.

You can follow Ron on Twitter (as he jokes, while he still has an account) @RonColeman and read his blog at Likelihood of Confusion.

    FIFY. Only about 25% of intellectual property attorneys qualify as inanimate objects. Ron is not one of them.
