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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 06 February 2024

Happy February! Where did January go? It was both the longest and shortest month ever.

This week, there were 504 newly registered trademarks in class 025 (24 of which were Supplemental, and yes, I’m about halfway done with a blog post about the Supplemental Register), and 412 cancelled marks. There were no X LIFE marks this week, so our streak counter resets to zero.

Note: These new marks 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.)

DRAGON SQUAD
DROID – LucasFilm, of course.
DUCK BUDDIES – It’s like fuck buddies, but they’re fucking ducks! (Do NOT Google what a duck penis looks like.)😆

[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.

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