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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 02 July 2024

Happy July, everyone! It’s another weird week with a low number of new registrations; maybe the folks at the USPTO are taking some vacation time for Independence Day? Anyhoo, in class 025 we have 381 newly registered marks this week, and 397 previously registered marks were cancelled (including at least one really juicy one). There were also 21 applications that were abandoned before completion.

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% OREGONIC – Oregon + organic, I guess.
ADVENTURES OF PETER COTTONTAIL -Not affiliated with the song or TV special.
BE HUMBLE BE BOLD BE TRUE BE YOU – Don’t tell me how to be, you’re not my mom!
BORN TO SEA
BOUJEE HIPPIE – This feels like an oxymoron.
DADDY’S LIL MONSTER – Owner: DC Comics! Application was submitted over 8 YEARS AGO.
FORMULA RACER
FRAT DADDY – Same owner as the Peter Cottontail one above.
I ONLY SMOKE WHEN I DRINK
INTERNATIONALLY KNOWN WORLDWIDE – Don’t “international” and “worldwide” cover the same turf?
LOVE EWE – Goods are just slippers. (And pet beds/pet toys in other classes.)
MINIMAL AF – Specimens show a low-poly illustration that I would not call minimal.
NOTHING WASTED
RIDE TIL DEATH – Instead of the old “ride or die,” I guess this is “ride AND die”?
SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL CAFFEINE DEALER – For me, this is my local Coca-Cola Zero bottler.
WEATHER YOUR STORM
WORK YOUR BUT OFF [sic] – “Show the world you’re not defined by doubt.”
YEAH WHATEVER
YEAH WHATEVER BRO
YOUNG-AT-HEART – The USPTO had them add the hyphens to match their specimen, but didn’t ding them for this being a common slogan. 🙄

 


PART 1-B: NEW REGISTRATIONS (SUPPLEMENTAL REGISTER)

Nothing! Only 5 total this week, and none of them were worth curating.

 


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

Also nothing! What a delightful week.

 


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 may or may not 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.
