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

Brand New Trademark Applications: February 4 – February 10, 2023

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 most-often used classes for crafted goods.

(Some of these are also 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 made bold the ones that seem particularly concerning to a lot of crafters.

 


Class 014 – Jewelry

Includes: jewelry (rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, etc.), key chains, clocks and watches (except smartwatches), cuff links, jewelry boxes, and more.

LIFE HARMONY
MAJESTIC GEMS
SLACKERS
SOMETHING AFTER FOREVER
STAY FR34KY – Same party has applied for several marks with “FR34K” in them, so if the word FREAK is part of your branding, take a look.
TAILORED METAL

 


Class 016 – Paper Goods & Printed Matter

Includes: greeting cards, pens, books, planners, journals, envelopes, decals and stickers, bags for packaging, gift wrap, and more.

BETWEEN WORLDS
BURGERS AND FRIES BEFORE GUYS – Clearly trying to battle the recent spate of takedowns from the German owners of FRIES BEFORE GUYS.
COURAGE TO RISE
FREELANCER
GAMERCORE
I HAVE…………AND IT’S THE LEAST INTERESTING THING ABOUT ME – This one is only in class 016 for now, but their goods list includes bottles, mugs, t-shirts, and more. They’ll need to adjust those lists and pay the fees for more classes once this gets sent to an examiner late this year. No specimens yet, but I’ll bet several dollars that they’ll fill in that blank with just about any disease or condition they can.

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!
