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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 30 January 2024

We’re experiencing a magical first this week, everyone! There were more cancellations (357) than new registrations (322) for the first time since I started doing these lists 5 years ago! (Also, I can’t believe this spreadsheet is 5 years old; I had to go check, and indeed, I started it on January 11, 2019.) Of the new registrations, only 8 were on the Supplemental Register, so hopefully this weird phase where we have tons of those has ended. [Fingers crossed.] I also can’t believe we’re at the end of January. Where did it gooooo?

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.)

[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.
