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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 09 April 2024

We had 783 newly registered trademarks in class 025, and I feel like I curated, like, half of them. On the flip side, there were 444 cancellations and 181 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)

ADIOS COWBOY
AIN’T THAT RICH
ALMOST OFFICIAL – I thought this would be a pre-wedding design, but no!
AVADA KEDAVRA – Owner: Warner Bros. But you weren’t using this anyway, right?
BEACHY KEEN
BEYOND SOBER
BLACK RABBIT – Makes me think of Watership Down.
BOBCAT – The industrial vehicle company.
CACTUS BOY – He’s even harder to hug than Edward Scissorhands.
DADDY SAID – Goods: “shirts not for babies.”
FIND YOUR WAY OUTDOORS
FOOTBALL IS SEXY – Depends on which one.
GODLY
HAUTE GIRL – Different owner than the next “haute” mark.
HAUTE SAUCE – Do they think it’s pronounced “hot”? Or are they selling oat sauce?
HEALTHYISH
HOT PANTS – List of goods does not contain hot pants, nor any other bottoms.
IVF MAMA
JUST HUSTLE – As always, I loathe the hustle.
LAUGH NOW DIE LATER – Sounds like a common thing we call “life.”
LEAGUE OF MY OWN
LITTLE DAISY – They’re so friendly. Don’t you think daisies are the friendliest flower?
LIVE RUGGED – I’ll pass. I’m definitely an indoor cat.
LONDON BRIDGE
LOWKEY – I think the kids today also say “high key,” but nowhere near as much.
MISTLETOASTED
MODESTLY ARROGANT – This is like a single drop of poop in a stew: it makes it poop stew. You’re just arrogant.
MONEY BABY
OPEN ALL NITE
PEACEFUL ASSEMBLY
RAWDOG – Gross. Also, both specimens are totally ornamental.
REAL SANTAS WEAR BROWNToday I learned!
RISK & REWARD
SEE THE GOOD – You don’t need to do the good or be the good. Just … see it.
SHARE A PRAYER – Don’t share a prayer for me now. Save it ’til the morning after.
SILLY TURTLE
SIMPLE…GOD’S WORK!
SPIKE LIKE A GIRL – Owner of several other X LIKE A GIRL marks.
STREET GRANDMA – I’d rather roll with the “toddler grandma” aesthetic.
TALK HEATHEN – I do. Every single day.
TAROT – Hopefully they don’t go on a takedown spree of every tarot card shirt out there. 🤞
THASSIT
TOP DAD’S ASSOCIATION [sic] – Apparently, top dads use the greengrocer’s apostrophe.
WHERE THE OCEAN MEETS THE SANDS – A thing that only happens in Port Royal, I guess.
WINGARDIUM LEVIOSA – Same comments as with AVADA KEDAVRA.

In addition, there are at least a dozen illustrated marks that include a heartbeat/EKG line, with an object in the middle. I’m showing a couple of examples here; in order to see them all, visit the Trademark Search page and paste in the following: ON:”parker alexander s”

A bunch of those heartbeat marks

PART 2: CANCELLED MARKS

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! 🪦

Editor’s note: the world is really a sadder place without a JUSSY PUICE trademark. 🤮

 


[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.
