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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 20 February 2024

There were 521 newly registered trademarks this week in class 025, and 352 cancellations. I also think I’ve figured out how to get my site to send emails out to you every time a new post goes live; if you’re interested, you should see a pop-up thingy to sign up at the bottom of the page in about 10 seconds.

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 1: NEW REGISTRATIONS (PRINCIPAL REGISTER)

#AGEISMSUCKS – True! Because both old farts and young whippersnappers are BOTH awful.
AFTER SCHOOL SPECIAL – Do they even still make these?
AGGRESSIVE HOOKER – Ah, excellent, bad fishing puns right off the bat.
BANGIN’
BE YOUR BIG SELF
CHRIST IS PERFECT LIFE – Funny, there are FAR fewer “Christ” marks than “Jesus” marks.
CUDDLESAUR
DEAR GOD, – Don’t know if you noticed, but…
DO WHAT JESUS WOULD DO – Oh, how seldom this seems to actually happen.
DRINK WATER, STAY ALIVE – I definitely needed to be told this. It just isn’t obvious!
ENJOY YOUR GAME
FAZE
FOR THE LOVE OF THE SPORT
HOOKED ON FUN -More fishing, and no golf yet? Weird!
I’M A DAD FIRST
JUST GET STARTED – It’s like Kirkland Signature brand “Just Do It.” 😆
NERD BRAIN – An affliction I’ve suffered for my entire life.
NO EXCUSES NO REGRETS
OWNER OPERATOR
PARK LIFE – The X LIFE counter begins again. 1 week streak!
RADISH
RICH & WELL OFF – One of those things that, if you wore it on the front of a shirt, would probably get you mugged.
SALTY PANDA
SCHOOLYARD VIBES – The perfect vibes: being chosen last and feeling uncoordinated.
SERIAL CHILLER – They’ll enjoy anyone’s Netflix!
SLOW ROLL
TRIP
WAKE BAIT SLAY – More fishing! Makes me kind of miss the golf puns.

PART 3: ABANDONED APPLICATIONS!

An application that I was keeping an eye on (CHRISTIAN) was abandoned this week, so I figured why not share what a week of abandoned applications looks like? There were a total of 312 applications that bit the dust this past week (in class 025, with mark drawing code 4). The most likely cause was the applicant not submitting corrected, updated, or informative material by the USPTO’s deadline. Ding, dong, these witches are dead!

[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.
