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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 07 November 2023

Happy Trademark Tuesday! It took nearly 4 years, but I’ve finally caught the Covid. We’ll see if my snark makes any sense!

We have 584 newly registered trademarks in class 025 this week, and 385 cancelled marks.

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.)

PART 3: SPECIMENS OF NOTE

I’m going to skip going through a bunch of specimens this week, and go take a nap instead.

 


[sic] = The mark contains a spelling, spacing, grammar, or punctuation error. 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!
