Twentieth Century Fox Television v. Empire Distribution, Inc., 16-55577

Affirming the district court’s summary judgment in favor of Fox, holding that their use of the name ‘Empire’ was protected by the First Amendment and therefore was outside of the reach of the Lanham Act and their use of the word as a show title did not infringe on a record label’s trademark rights.
