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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 12 December 2023

This week has 707 newly registered trademarks in class 025, and 375 cancellations. And oh my goodness, I feel like the curated list of new trademarks is WAY longer than usual.

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-B: NEW REGISTRATIONS (SUPPLEMENTAL REGISTER)

SISTERS TRUSTING IN CHRIST
VINTAGE.CLOTHING – Goods: dresses. Their application for the Principal Register was refused, due to the mark just being a descriptive phrase. They tried to appeal that by saying, “The present application uses two words connected by a period to create the impression of a domain name and/or a single fanciful word. As such, applicant submits that the mark is not descriptive.” The examining attorney said “Nope,” so they change to the Supplemental Register.

PART 3: SPECIMENS OF NOTE

I don’t usually show specimens for cancelled marks, but I just wanted to show you this specimen for PERVERT. That’s right, it’s just the huge text PERVERT on a folded garment. (From the bulk of it, I’m guessing it’s a sweatshirt.) SIGH.
Specimen for PERVERT

 


[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.

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