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

Double Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 14 & 21 May 2024

I was away on vacation last week, but don’t worry: I came down with norovirus 24 hours after I got home! 😆 Anyhoo, for the 2-week period, we had pretty low numbers: 1083 newly registered trademarks in class 025, 546 cancelled marks, and 322 abandoned applications.

Note: The marks in part 1 are now fully registered and active! These lists are compiled from the Trademark Official Gazette, which publishes lists 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.)

 


PART 1: NEW REGISTRATIONS (PRINCIPAL REGISTER)

1 NATION – Indivisible? With liberty and justice for all?
1991 – I was in college. Twin Peaks was the hot TV show. The Silence of the Lambs was a great movie, and won the Best Picture Oscar the next year.
AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT
BALD MEN RULE – As the wife of a bald man, I agree!
BE OUTSTANDING AT SOMETHING SIMPLE – It’s kind of an easy way to impress people.
BLESSED WARRIOR
COUNTRY COOL
DAYDREAMER
DEBUT
DEPARTMENT OF UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES
DEVOTED GRIND – Enough with the grind! And the hustle! Urgghhh!
DO WHAT’S RIGHT BECAUSE IT’S RIGHT
DRAFTED BY GOD
DYRT LYFE
FOR ALL MANKIND – Not related to the TV show. (I love that TV show!)
FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE – Exactly what I say when I see a common phrase registered as a trademark.
G’DAY BABY
HIGHWAY TO HELL
HOLE LIFE – You’re all, “Golf?” And I’m all, “Golf.”
HONORARY GRAD
I IDENTIFY AS SKINNY. – I find “I identify as” just about as unfunny as “wordplay” like “drunk wives matter.”
I WILL UNTIL
KIRBY – Sorry, anyone named Kirby. Nintendo owns you.
LIFE’S BETTER WHEN YOU DANCE
MEET ME AT THE CASTLE – Surprise, it’s a travel agent who does Disney vacations. (Not surprised.)
MEMENTO
MOTHER PUMPER – Goes right above MOTHER PUNKER on the spreadsheet.
NOT FORSAKEN
OLD SCHOOL
PLEASE & THANK YOU – I will always hear this in Ron Swanson’s voice.
POWERBALL
PROUDLY HATED
RADIO SILENCE
ROOMMATES
SALVATION
SALVATION HAS ITS PRIVILEGES – So here’s a perfect example of how a common word can be registered (see just above), but you can still use it in a larger phrase. And people can still register it as a trademark when used in a larger phrase, even though the individual word is also registered.
SANDWICH ISLES
SCIENCE IS MY SUPERPOWER
SELF-CARE IS A VIBE
SHE GOT IT FROM HER MAMA – You gotta love it when the specimens all use the same hang tag, held on with a safety pin.
SHREWD
SINNER SAVED
SPACE DADDY – Don’t some people call Elon Musk this? 🤮
WHAT DOES MY DUST TASTE LIKE – Because you are certainly eating it, my friend!
WOE
YAHWEHS SON [sic]

PART 3: ABANDONED APPLICATIONS! 🎉

Here are the applications that were abandoned this week in class 025, with mark drawing code 4. The most likely cause was the applicant not submitting corrected, updated, or informative material by the USPTO’s deadline. Ding, dong, these witches are dead! 🪦

[sic] = The mark contains a spelling, spacing, grammar, or punctuation error which does not appear to be wordplay. The error is left as-is.
[removed from spreadsheet] = The cancelled item had been on my spreadsheet of marks, and has now been removed.
