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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 21 November 2023

There were 662 newly registered trademarks in class 025 this week, and 379 cancellations. I’m now testing negative for COVID! But I’m still snotty AF. 🤧

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

Here’s the specimen for EAT DIRT. It’s teeny tiny, and for all we know, the text is hand-written on the sweatshirt. Is there a sigh emoji?  I guess this will have to do: 😮‍💨.

[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.
