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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 25 June 2024

I’m loving this new trend where my cancelled marks list is longer than the new registrations! So many of the new registrations were for actual brands or illustrated marks, it warms my heart. Overall numbers for the week: there are 627 newly registered marks in class 025, 457 previously registered marks were cancelled, and a meager 12 applications in class 025 were abandoned before they made it across the finish line.

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)

BAD DOGS – There are no bad dogs, only bad owners.
BOOKSTORE & CHILL – Do they plan to “chill” in the bookstore? 🍆📖
BUOY BOY – Do you pronounce these the same? For me, “buoy” is “boo-ee”.
CAREFUL KID – Does such a thing exist?
CLOD – The specimen is a shirt with CLOD printed on the front, and there wasn’t even an Office Action sent.
DINKER – Pickleball continues to take over the sports marks.
DO RAD SHIT – Goes right below DO AWESOME SHIT and DO EPIC SHIT on the spreadsheet.
DOWN SYNDROME ROCKS
EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE IN LIFE WHEN YOU BELIEVE IN YOURSELF – Truth!
FUNGUS IS AMONG US
HORNY ANIMAL – Looks like this is animals with horns, not ones that want to “chill” in a bookstore.
HUMANS – A classic example of a horny animal.
OLD MAN STRENGTH
OLDER IS BOLDER
ONLYMOMS – It’s a podcast from MomJuice. (I expected it to be an OnlyFans parody.)
SAILOR MOON – But you weren’t using this anyway, right?
SKATE LIKE A GIRL – Or, y’know, like a grown woman.
STOCKING STUFFERS FOR – Disclaims “stocking stuffers.” Owner is an individual in China, because of course.
THAT WORK AIN’T GONE DO ITSELF
VAMPIRE SURVIVORS – I was bitten and drained of blood, and all I got was this t-shirt.
VISIBLY TOXIC – Like a brightly-colored toad. Hmm, maybe I’ll color my hair pink again. 😆
WE ALL WE GOT

PART 3: ABANDONED APPLICATIONS! 🎉

Here are the applications that were abandoned this 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.

As always, the new marks have been added to my ginormous spreadsheet; please check it out for a shockingly large list of registered trademarks!
