We had 762 new marks (of which over 50 were supplemental, which is a huge number for the second week in a row; usually there are 5 or so) registered in class 025 this week, and 364 cancellations.
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 1: NEW REGISTRATIONS (PRINCIPAL REGISTER)
ACHIEVE GREATNESS – Too late, already done.
BASEMENT DADDY – Is it just me, or does “daddy” feel more like a kink than a parenthood status these days?
BE YOU BE GREAT
BEAM QUEEN – For all you gymnasts out there.
BIG SPOON ENERGY – One of my cats loves to be my little spoon.
BOYS GET SAD TOO – True! And they’re allowed to cry and have plenty of non-anger emotions.
CATS ARE LIQUID – Also true!
CHURCH LIFE – Our X LIFE streak is now at 6 weeks in a row!
COCKMASTER – For all you chicken guys out there.
COMME SI – French for “as if.”
FIVE ELEVEN – For all you not-quite-six-foot folks out there.
FRESH LOVE – Better than that day-old stale love that gets sold at 50% off.
GRUMPY PUMPKIN – Opposite of the positive potato.
HUSTLE & HAVE FUN – This feels like two opposite directives.
LADYTIMES – This is our in-house term for periods.
LIKE A PUP
PROFIT FROM YOUR WORK – Now this I can get behind. As long as it isn’t hustle/grind culture.
STRAIGHT OUTTA BREATH – You’ll never guess how this phrase is stylized in the specimen. [eyeroll]
SUPERCOLD – Story of many women’s lives.
THE COZY CREW – I don’t think I’ve had a crew since high school. But I’d join this one.
THE RICH UNCLE – A completely different owner than the already-registered THE RICH AUNT.
WE ALL HAVE SPECIAL NEEDS – Specimen below.

PART 3: SPECIMENS OF NOTE
Here’s the specimen for WE ALL HAVE SPECIAL NEEDS. Bear in mind, the original image is really big, so all you see at first is the tag in the neck of the shirt. You’d have to scroll down for the illustration. I can’t quite decide if this is offensive, or just unsettling. Or maybe a combination of the two. At any rate, the actual brand appears to be “Autisticwear” and/or “AW.”
[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!
