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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 05 March 2024

Welcome to March! This week, there were 586 newly registered trademarks in class 025. We also had 407 cancellations, and 166 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)

ADAM AND EAVESDROPPING – Not Adam and Stevesdropping.
ADJUSTABLE HEADPHONES – Goods: kaftans, footwear, underwear, mittens, and underarm pads. Another weird China registration.
ALWAYS THINKING – My ADHD brain at 1:00AM.
ANGRY COWGIRL – Same owner as ANGRY COWBOY.
BELI4VE – First time I’ve seen a 4 in place of an E. Usually it stands in for an A.
CAN’TCER
CHARLIE CHAPLIN – Not sure if “Bubbles Incorporated” is his estate.
CHERISH YOURSELF – Crud, now I have Madonna’s “Cherish” stuck in my head.
CHIP – A cookie company with locations in several US states.
CURIOUS CREATURES
DIFFER3NT – See? Yeah! Usually a 3, not a 4, in place of an E!
FACTS OVER FEAR
FAIRY TAILS – Note that this is “tails”, not “tales.”
FREE TO LOVE ME
FYRE FESTIVAL – Feels dated, but this application was submitted in April 2018!
GOOD-BYE BRANDON! – Are they just … afraid to say “Biden”?
HAPPY TUESDAY – This is what I wish you, today!
HOME RUN DERBY – Owned by Major League Baseball.
HUSTLE MINDED INDIVIDUALS
I LOVE PLAYING – What a surprise, the original specimen has the word “pickleball” after the mark.
INNER DEMON
IT’S NOT WHAT YOU’RE GOING THROUGH, BUT HOW YOU’RE VIEWING IT! – A nice short memorable mark. 😆
LIVE WITH COURAGE
LOST IN TRANSLATION
MAMARITA – Owner is “Empamamas,” so they have a theme going.
MAMMOTH
MS. PRESIDENT
NOT MY PASTURE, NOT MY BULLSHIT. – Of course, the specimens are all ornamental. 🙄
NOT REALLY HIRING – But nobody wants to woooork anymore! (For the shitty wage I’m offering.)
PART TIME LOCAL – Aaaand now I have Stevie Wonder singing “Part-Time Lover” in my head.
REVENGE – How dare anyone but the Dread Pirate Roberts own the name of his ship.
SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE – An absolute necessity.
SOCCER IS A KICK IN THE GRASS – An ornamental phrase that’s been around for decades. *SIGH*
STOP LOOKING AT MY BUTT
SUNSHINE LYFE – I’m counting this as an X LIFE mark. 3 week streak!
THE WAR ON DRUGS – It’s a band! Here’s “Under the Pressure” (2014). Oooh, I might really like these guys!
THOT LEADER – For those not hip to the slang, a “thot” is a woman who has many casual sexual encounters.
UNKILLABLE – This would be inaccurate on most people.
VIA LA BONITA

PART 3: ABANDONED APPLICATIONS! 🎉

[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.

 


Note: This is a curated list, and may not include all marks that affect you or your business. All opinions expressed in the snark are my own. All snark is intended for entertainment purposes.

As always, the new marks have been added to my ginormous spreadsheet; please check it out for a shockingly large list of registered trademarks!
