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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 19 March 2024

It’s always a great week when there are more cancellations than new registrations. This week, we had a piddling 348 new marks registered in class 025, and a whopping 433 cancelled. Plus, 165 applications were abandoned before they made it all the way through! I’m glad the new registrations list is light, since I gotta skedaddle off to the dentist today.

Note: The marks in part 1 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 1: NEW REGISTRATIONS (PRINCIPAL REGISTER)

AFTER MARKET – Because I want my shirt to imply that I’m full of spare parts.
ASK ABOUT ME
AUD – Since the owner is in California, I’m guessing they don’t mean “Australian Dollar.”
CANNONBALL RUN – Owned by some individual in California.
CHICKEN CITY
DOG PARTY – I’d rather go to a cat party, myself.
GRIND TIL WE RICH – Or until we stressed and exhausted.
JUST MELANIN
LONELY ALIEN – I’m an immigrant resident alien, and yeah, it can be lonely!
MAUI GIRL
NOM – My spell check doesn’t like it, but it’s in several dictionaries now.
RIDE YOUR HOSS
SCOWL – As is customary, when I know it’s a band, I’ll share a song. This is Scowl’s “Psychic Dance Routine” (2023).
SWEATY PEOPLE – The specimen is a set of 100% polyester pajamas. No wonder they’re sweaty!
THE HUNTRESS – We’ll have this in soaps, candles, and furniture (at least) on the bonus classes list.
TYPECAST
WEALTHY & BLESSED
WINS OVER LOSSES – To differentiate your brand from those who … like losing?
WUH DUH FUH – Because you’d never be able to get “What the Fuck” as your trademark, I guess.

PART 3: ABANDONED APPLICATIONS! 🎉

[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.
