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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 17 October 2023

There were 655 new registrations this week in class 025, and 344 cancellations. I’m a bit light on the snark this week, and I’m not going deep into the specimens to find ones to snark about; I’ll be out of town a couple of days this week, so I’m going straight from this into making the bonus classes list.

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.)

As a bonus, I’d been following the application for CHEF; it was abandoned this week. Always nice when they never make it to registration!

 


PART 3: SPECIMENS OF NOTE

Skipping this week, I’m a bit tight on time to get both this list and the bonus classes list out on Tuesday!

 


[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.

 


Note: This is a curated list, and may not include all marks that affect you or your business. All opinions expressed in the snark are my own. All snark is intended for entertainment purposes.

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