Scandalous or contrary to law

Under section 42 of the TMA:

An application for the registration of a trade mark must be rejected if:
(a) the trade mark contains or consists of scandalous matter; or
(b) its use would be contrary to law.

'Scandalous' marks are likely to be fairly rare, but would include marks which would offend cultural or religious sensibilities, are racist, or promote the sale of an illegal substance.
