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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – April 5, 2022

Happy April! We have an average-sized week for new registrations (895 total), but there are some real doozies in there. Overall there were more cancelled marks than usual (293 total), but not very many of them were useful or interesting. Enjoy!

 


PART 1: NEW REGISTRATIONS

DON’T BE A BITCH – Unless, you know, it’s necessary. Or you just want to be. Or it’s a day ending in Y.

TOO SPECIAL TO SETTLE
