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

Bonus content! Newly registered marks for the week of 23 January 2024

The Supplemental Register is taking over the week! I feel like the USPTO is getting around to flushing a ton of generic-ass stuff that’s been sitting around for a while out to that lesser register. Maybe I should write up a Deep Dive on the Supplemental Register — what it is, what it does, who it’s for, etc. etc. etc.

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.)
