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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 16 January 2024

We have 842 newly registered marks this week (Of which 60 or so were on the Supplemental Register; maybe they’re just being more aggressive about sending cruft over there?), and 387 cancellations. Our X LIFE counter resets to zero this week, after 6 weeks in a row. We’ll see if we can beat that record in the future!

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 just … [sigh]. This is what the USPTO is accepting as proper branding. A plain tag with a plain font held on with a safety pin, and with a totally different web address.  And that website is currently password-only.

Specimen for MILK DONATING HERO

 


[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.

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