DPS back down from ‘Know Justice, Know Peace’ trademark dispute, students will continue podcast

The Denver Post: Denver Public Schools is backing down from a trademark dispute with a group of current and former Black students who created a podcast about racial injustice called “Know Justice, Know Peace” in the wake of the George Floyd murder.

The students at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Early College who created the podcast in 2020 will get to claim the trademark and continue making the podcast under that name, while DPS will create a new podcast of its own.

A lawyer for DPS previously argued that because the podcast was made with district equipment and the guidance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Early College’s former principal, the district should own the rights to the production.
