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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 14 November 2023

We had a meager 538 newly registered trademarks today. I remember when it was, like, 1200+ every week! There were also 398 cancellations, which is a pretty beefy number.  As far as my Covid goes, I’m slowly recovering. I have maybe 4% of my sense of smell back. I miss smelling things!

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.)

[image]: MAMA BEAR in a modern script font with a bear illustration. – They were required to disclaim the phrase MAMA BEAR, because it’s a commonplace term that conveys an ordinary sentiment that doesn’t identify a source of goods. (This is also some awful lumpy-looking traced-as-heck text.)

PART 3: SPECIMENS OF NOTE

Here are the totally ornamental specimens for DOGGIE MOMMA. Plus, they’re tiny, so they’re showing up hella pixelated.  I also think they should have to register this as an illustrated mark, what with that paw print replacing the O.

Specimens for DOGGIE MOMMA

 


[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.
