There were an even 600 newly registered marks in class 025 this week, and 380 cancellations. I’m a bit light on the snark, because my big fat orange cat is desperate to be on my desk in front of my keyboard, so this post is taking way longer than usual. 😆
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
AMONG THE OTHERS
BLUE COLLAR PATRIOT – A very not-good specimen.
CHEWBACCA – But you absolutely weren’t using this, right?
COAL MINER’S DAUGHTER – Owned by Loretta Lynn Enterprises.
EXPERIENCE LIFE ELEVATED
FANDADDIES – Not sure if it’s fans of daddies, or if the daddies are fans of something.
GET HOOKED – One of the worst iron-on specimens I have ever seen.
I AM NOT A PRODUCT – If you use social media, you unfortunately are.
I AM YOUR PEOPLE
I’D RATHER SEEK & EXPLORE THAN WORK & CHORE – Yeah, wouldn’t we all?

NC LIFE – Excellent, we have our “X LIFE” mark for the week.
RAISING ALPHAS – If you have to tell people you’re an alpha, you’re a gamma at best. 😆
SABIA – Translates to “knowledge” or “wisdom.”
SALT WATER SWIM
SO CLUCKIN’ GOOD – I’ve never had Bojangles’ chicken, but I hear it’s fantastic.
STRAIGHT OUTTA GOLF – The specimen looks exactly as you’d expect it to.

PART 3: SPECIMENS OF NOTE
One of the worst iron-on specimens I’ve ever seen is GET HOOKED. This is one of their four specimen images, and they’re all this bad.
BLUE COLLAR PATRIOT shows the brand as HOWITZER, and the name of the shirt is BLOOD SWEAT PRIDE. Plus the phrase is ornamental AF. I have no idea how this made it through.
And here’s STRAIGHT OUTTA GOLF, which is exactly what you’re expecting it to be: a twist on the STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON movie title treatment. This formatting never makes sense to me when the bottom word is not a location.
What a surprise: I looked at the golf phrase, the fishing phrase, and the jingoistic phrase, and they were all terrible specimens. Just like every week.
[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.
As always, the new marks have been added to my ginormous spreadsheet; please check it out for a shockingly large list of registered trademarks!
