We had a totally average 572 new trademark registrations in class 025 this week, including a couple of wedding party ones to watch out for. But there were a shockingly few 148 cancellations. And even fewer than usual cancellations worth curating!
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)
ANNE OF GREEN GABLES – They have other registrations too; this one is just adding a few more goods.
BABE OF HONOR – Owner is an individual in China. Specimen is terrible.
BAKED IN LA – Works for both Louisiana and Los Angeles!
BE OUTRAGEOUS IT’S CONTAGIOUS
BEAUTIFUL & STONED
BIG DICK’S DAM NEAR INN – Same owner as BIG DICK’S HALFWAY INN, of course.
BREAD LIFE – And so our X LIFE streak starts again. 1 week!
BRIDE’S BABES – Same owner as BABE OF HONOR.
DEDICATION TO GREATNESS
DESK TO DUSK

I AM NOT AN ALGORITHM, I AM A HUMAN BEING!

MAY THE FLORIDA SUN FOLLOW YOU HOME – But the other Florida stuff can stay there.
MY BEACHY SIDE
OCCASIONALLY STUCK UP
P.S. MAMA, YOU’RE DOING GREAT!

PART 1-C: OLDER REGISTERED MARKS I DISCOVERED THIS WEEK
PART 2: CANCELLED MARKS
(Standard disclaimer: Always double-check these words and phrases before using them in your designs, to make sure there isn’t a separate registration that is still live and active. Some marks have multiple registrations!)
BLACK ON BLACK
CANCER CAN’T STOP SEXY
FISHBONE – Class 025 cancelled. Classes 014 and 018 remain active.
HEARTLESS BITCHES INTERNATIONAL
YOU’RE YOUR OWN DESTINY
PART 3: SPECIMENS OF NOTE
[space to show images of poor specimens and talk shit about them.]
BABE OF HONOR: The BABE OF HONOR hat at Amazon is marked as “currently unavailable.” There are a couple of other brands selling BABE OF HONOR shirts on Amazon, so I’m sure those will be sent takedowns ASAP.
DON’T TREAD ON OUR KIDS: The “Brittany and Kasi” shop used in the specimen does not have the pictured shirt listed anymore, so sadly, you can’t get a shirt playing off of the Gadsden flag in a Barbie font. But if you’re in the market for “Close the F*ing Border” or “Try That in a Small Town” shirts, or ones with a photo of Jason Aldean on them, you’re in luck.
[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. All snark is intended for entertainment purposes.
As always, the new marks have been added to my ginormous spreadsheet; please check it out for a shockingly large list of registered trademarks!
