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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 19 December 2023

This week has 657 newly registered trademarks in class 025, and 377 cancellations. But the curated lists are … oddly short? A lot of nonsense words, image/logo marks, and actual brands in there. I love to see it!

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.)

DON’T WE HAVE IT NICE
ESTRADA – Yes, it’s just “road.” (Spanish/Portuguese)
EVERY DAY IS LOVE DAY

PART 3: SPECIMENS OF NOTE

Please enjoy one of the specimens from I DON’T COOK…I COCKTAIL and one from I DON’T VACATION…I VEGAS. Their use of blurry, pixelated images of ornamental use with some Comic Sans is *chef’s kiss.*

Specimens for the two I DON'T marks

 


[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.

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