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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 02 April 2024

A little later than usual today; you can’t fight city hall, but you can go there and wait an hour and a half to get a document. This week we had 703 newly registered marks in class 025, 377 cancellations, and 149 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)

100% FEMALE BEEF – Today I learned that we mostly eat castrated male beef. Females are usually kept for breeding and milk.
100% MALE BEEF – But I don’t know if ranching practices are what these phrases are referring to.
ADHD AF – Are the specimens ornamental AF? You betcha!
ART ON SHIRTS – Totally descriptive, with terrible specimens.
BABY UNDERSOCKS – Today is a descriptive-palooza!
BATTLE SQUAD
BOUJEE BEST FRIEND – I still haven’t decided on my favorite spelling of boujee/boujie/bougee/bougie.
BOYSLUT – Let’s not shame the girl sluts OR the boy sluts.
BRAIN INJURED BRO – Their Etsy shop specimen appears to be gone.
CLASS TRIP – Our best school class trip was an overnighter to Victoria, B.C., Canada. What was yours?
COOL TO DROOL – For baby bibs, naturally.
CRYPTO BABIES
CULPRIT
EVERYTHING YOU WANT IS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF HARD
FELIZ CANABIS – Dang it, now I have “Feliz Navidad” playing in my head.
GOT MUD – For once, it isn’t stylized like the GOT MILK? ads.
IN BABES WE TRUST
KICKING IT
KIND PEOPLE DO BEAUTIFUL THINGS – And hopefully vice versa!
LAZY THINGS – Kind people can also do these.
LITHUANIA STRONG
LIVE ICONIC
LOVE POMS
MAMA’S BOY – Isn’t this an insult? Specimen is text on a grubby stained shirt, worn by a full-grown man. 🤮
ORDINARY MARY
PARK
PIMP ACADEMY
RANCH GIRL – I beg your pardon, I’m a ranch woman. [Chugs a glass of Hidden Valley]
RESULTS DRIVEN
SAVAGE NERD
SHE’S POPPIN
SOMEWHERE BETWEEN LOST AND FOUND
STL ROCKS – I’ve never been to St. Louis, so I can’t vouch for whether or not it actually rocks.
SUBLIME LIFE – I believe this is a 2-week streak for X LIFE.
SUNSET CLUB – Hard to join if you want a tan.
TANNING CLUB – Hard to join if it’s sunset.
THE MEEK SHALL INHERIT THE DIRT – I don’t think dirt is what the bible meant by “earth.”
TRAVEL DIVAS
TREASVRE
UNICORN WARRIOR – They’re pretty vicious with those stabby horns!

 


PART 1-B: NEW REGISTRATIONS (SUPPLEMENTAL REGISTER)

Only 13 new Supplemental registrations total this week, and none were for common words or phrases!

 


PART 1-C: OLDER REGISTERED MARKS I DISCOVERED THIS WEEK

JINGLE BELLY

 


PART 1-D: THE WEIRDEST MARK OF THE WEEK FROM AN OVERSEAS APPLICANT

SÖPÖSÖPÖ – From Finland. I love a good diaeresis, but this maybe goes a little overboard. (This translates to CUTECUTE.)

 


PART 2: CANCELLED MARKS

(Standard disclaimer: Always double-check these words and phrases before using them in your designs, to make sure there isn’t a separate registration that is still live and active. Some marks have multiple registrations!)

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.
