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

Bonus content! Newly registered marks for the week of 21 November 2023

I always love it when these lists are short; it means that most of the new registrations for the week are actual brands or illustrated logos. Or those nonsense words like AURLDPIO or GBEHEE or MZSYXXM (those were all new registrations this week in 021) that nobody other than their China-based owners are going to ever use.

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.)
