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

Brand New Trademark Applications: October 7 – October 13, 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 004: Fuels, Oils, and Illuminants

Includes: candles, tea lights, wax melts, potpourri wax, and lots of types of fuels and oils.

NESTA *
PINE + SALT
SOIL AND WAX

* “NESTA” means “in this” in Portuguese, but in this case it’s a character from a Sarah J. Maas book. Her company, Fireheart Inc, is also applying for a number of character names in 10 to 12 classes, including RHYSAND, SURIEL, and HUNT ATHALAR. If memory serves, she also has applications for a bunch of other character & location names that were filed previously.

 


Class 009: Electrical Apparatus & Digital Products

Includes: downloadable image files, computer software, computer fonts, computers, media players, phone cases, and a whole lot more.

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!
