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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 10 October 2023

There were 583 new marks registered in class 025 this week, and 374 cancellations. The new marks list is surprisingly short; most of them were actual brands, illustrated marks, or nonsense words. Which is always a pleasure! The fewer common phrases, the better!

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

Here’s one of the specimens for CERTIFIED BULLY. Yes, they’re using it on a hang tag and not ornamentally on the shirt, which is good. But I don’t understand how the brand is about being a bully, but the shirt is supporting beating cancer. They just don’t fit together.

Here’s one of the replacement specimens for GET IN THE TRUCK. Originally, it was all ornamental images. I went to the website in this photo; it’s semi-broken, with this “branding” text up on top of the header.

Specimen for GET IN THE TRUCK


[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.

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