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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 12 September 2023

661 new marks were registered this week in class 025, and 345 previously registered marks were cancelled. There are a couple of really tasty cancellations down there!  We also broke our streak of “X LIFE” marks, so that will start over … probably next week.

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

I know you were expecting some amazing specimen for ONCE YOU PUT MY MEAT IN YOUR MOUTH YOU’RE GONNA WANT TO SWALLOW. But friends, I’m here to disappoint the hell out of you. It’s just a boring dude in a boring plain black apron!

[removed from spreadsheet] = The cancelled item had been on my spreadsheet of marks, and has now been removed.
