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

Bonus content! Newly registered marks for the week of 16 January 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.
