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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 12 March 2024

This week’s big numbers: 583 new registrations, 419 cancellations, and 145 abandoned applications in class 025. We had no new X LIFE marks this week, so the counter resets to zero!

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)

ADRIFT AGAIN
ANGRY PECKER – It appears to be a rum.
BABY DJ – How will they even reach the turntables? Or put their speakers up on those tall poles?
CATCH A VIBE
CROWGIRL – Feels like more of a shifter romance character than a brand.
DEAD PECKER – Unsurprisingly, same owner as ANGRY PECKER. Will they go for three?
FLORENCE – Sorry, all you Florences out there.
FUCK DEPRESSION FIGHT DEPRESSION FIGHT ANXIETY
GAMBLERS
GETTING MONEY DAILY – A rare event that we call “working a job.”
GOOD POSTURE
HATCHET
HELLO DAY
I LOVE YOU MORE THAN CEREAL – And that’s saying something, cereal is delish!
JOB – Unsure if this is the biblical name or the drudgery we all have to deal with to get money daily.
KEEP YOUR HEART WILDER THAN WILD
KINDNESS IS NEVER LOST IN TRANSLATION
LIFE IS HOODIE. – My working from home wardrobe agrees.
LITTLE SASSHOLE – Same owner as plain SASSHOLE.
LIVE BOLD
LOVE IS – Great cause, but the specimens mainly show LOVE IS UNINTERRUPTED.
LOVE THY PLANTS
MIDWEST NICE – Is this similar to Seattle’s passive-aggressive politeness?
MOVER
MS. SAN DEE CLAUS – Their specimens are puzzling. And unattractive to my eye.
NO PATIENTS
RED HOT PECKER – Awww yeah, a pecker trifecta! Same owner as the others.
RUGGEDLY AUTHENTIC
SICK SIXTEEN – For those punks who don’t want to be sweet?
SLEEPY PEACH
SPIRITUALLY FABULOUS
THIN BLUE LINE – I feel like this is going to affect a LOT of people.
THIRSTY UNIVERSITY
UNFIT FOR PUBLIC
WHOA BABY! – They get +100 points for the correct spelling of “whoa.”
YOU MAD BECAUSE I’M BLESSED? TAKE IT UP WITH GOD!

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!

[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.
