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

Brand New Trademark Applications: April 17 – April 24, 2022

First thing: DON’T PANIC! This is a list of brand new applications for trademarks, NOT a list of marks that have been fully registered. For all of the marks on this list, someone has submitted some paperwork to the USPTO, and the folks at the USPTO have put the information into their system, and assigned a Serial Number (for easy tracking and reference). At this point, these will all sit in limbo for 6 to 9 months until they’re assigned to an examining attorney.

Many of these are incomplete from the get-go, or will be abandoned, or will be rejected. And some are for some really weird goods in their category. So check the “Goods and Services” tab on any mark of concern to see what it intends to cover! I’ve gone with the 5 most-often used classes for crafted goods.

Note: This is a curated list, and may not include all marks that affect you or your business. All marks are Drawing Code 4, meaning they are plain text without any required style, color, or font.

If one of these applied-for marks affects your business or brand, it’s never too early to file a Letter of Protest! You’ll need to create a MyUSPTO account to submit an LoP. It’s a handy account; you can also keep a list of applications of interest, and get an email any time there’s activity on that application!
