MISSY MEYER’S SNARKY MUSINGS ABOUT TRADEMARKS, COPYRIGHT, LICENSING, AND OTHER IP!

Bonus content! Newly registered marks for the week of 09 April 2024

Note: These marks are now fully registered and active! This list is compiled from the Trademark Official Gazette, which publishes a list of the newest registered marks every week. (Some of these are legitimate brand names! I’ve included them on this list because those brand names are also words or phrases that may be used on the goods in question by crafters and makers.)

I’ve highlighted in yellow the marks that seem particularly concerning to crafters and makers.

[Go straight to your preferred class: 003, 004, 014, 016, 018, 020, 021, 024, 026, 027, 028, 040]
