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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 30 April 2024

The weekly numbers: a total of 734 newly registered trademarks in class 025; a fairly large 430 previously registered marks that are now cancelled, and 204 abandoned applications.

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)

AWAKENING DEATH – Let’s start the week on a cheerful note.
BATCH
BE SUNNY NOT SALTY – But I like being salty!
BE YOUR VISION
BUST A MOVE – Doesn’t appear to have anything to do with the song.
CARTEL LIFE – The X LIFE streak continues on!
CLEARHEADED
COULD BE BETTER
COWBOY HUSTLE – Same owner as the next mark.
COWGIRL HUSTLE
CRYPTID CREATURES
DESPITE THE ODDS, WIN ANYWAY
DINKERBELL – Pickleball is taking over from golf & fishing for highest number of cruddy puns.
DRAGON CUBS – Baby dragons are apparently usually called “hatchlings.”
DRIP FLY
ENEMIES EVERYWHERE – If you’re living like this, I think you’re doing it wrong.
EVERYBODY WANTS THE MONEY, NOBODY WANTS THE WORK. – I mean, I’d do the work … for more money.
EVERYONE DESERVES A VERY GOOD LIFE
FILTHY RICH – Another one that maybe isn’t smart to wear around on a shirt.
FOOTY 4 LIFE
FORE EVER
FULL COLOR
GHOSTY
GRAB EM BY THE HORNS – I don’t believe this is owned by any collegiate sports teams.
I AM HERCULES – The mark identifies Judy Hercules, whoever that may be.
I CAN DIG IT! – I played Chicago’s “Saturday in the Park” the other day (yes, I’m an old) and my husband has been going around ever since, saying, “Can you dig it? Yes I can!”
I OVERCAME
LA LA LIFE
LIFE IS SHORT. CHOOSE WISELY. – “Choose wisely” will always be Indiana Jones grabbing the holy grail for me.
MERMAID HAIR DON’T CARE – Goods: Baseball caps and hats.
MORE THAN CAPABLE
MOUNTAIN STRONG
NO GUIDANCE
PHILLY GROWN – Another city with a lot of city-pride. I feel like you’d never see “Seattle Grown.”
PLAYING WITH FIRE
RAISED ON RICE
RECLAIMING MY POWER, I CHOOSE ME!
REIGN OVER THE STORM
RODEO HUSTLE – Same owner as the cowboy and cowgirl hustle marks earlier in the list.
SHORE TO SUMMIT
SIXTY
TEACHING IS AN ACT OF LOVE!
TELEKINETIC YETI
TRACY – Sorry to all you Tracys out there, who are probably Gen X.
TRISHA – Sorry to all you Trishas out there, who are probably also> Gen X.
TRUE FAITH
WARRIOR MOM – Goes right under WARRIOR MAMA on the spreadsheet, and the USPTO doesn’t appear to have sent any kind of action warning them of the similarity.
WE’REGAY
WITH ME

 


PART 1-B: NEW REGISTRATIONS (SUPPLEMENTAL REGISTER)

None! Nothing was registered on the Supplemental Register at all this week!

 


PART 1-C: OLDER REGISTERED MARKS I DISCOVERED THIS WEEK

EVERYDAY SUNDAY

 


PART 1-D: A FASCINATING MARK OF THE WEEK FROM AN OVERSEAS APPLICANT

WUSTENKATZE – Wüstenkatze is German for “Desert Cat,” another term for Santkatze (Sand Cat). They are freakin’ adorable, and would probably rip your face off. At least this China-based owner uses a cat graphic on the tags in the specimens!

 


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!)

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.
