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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – August 10, 2021

Happy Duran Duran Appreciation Day, everyone! They’re my favorite band of all time, which shows my age, and I don’t care! This fine August 10th, we have 717 new marks registered in class 025, and 261 previously registered marks in class 025 were partially or completely cancelled.


PART 1: NEW REGISTRATIONS

BOLDITUDE
C.H.O.O.S.E
CASUALLY
EVERYDAY EXPLORINGI can’t decide if they’ve used “everyday” (commonplace) vs. “every day” (occurring daily) correctly here or not!
FUTURISTWhen it’s a band name, I always go check them out. Here’s Futurist, playing some alt-rock psychedelic pop!
GOD’S FILTER
GOOD NEWS
HUMBLE LEGEND
INFINITE SPACE
LET’S MAKE HOPE CONTAGIOUS
NO WORRY’SAn interesting dodge around a popular phrase by using WORRY’S instead of WORRIES.
NOT YOUR AVERAGE
ONE FOR THE BOOKS
PRONE TO VIOLENCE
RESPECT THE LOCALS
SEXY GRANDPASeveral goods for this one, including lingerie and women’s hats.(???)
WEE THE PEOPLE

“Missy,” you may ask, “if there are 717 new marks this week, why are you only showing us 17 of them? What of the other 700?” Well, friends, every week the vast majority of the new marks are like these: strange, nonsensical, and often as if someone pounded on the keyboard with a fist and registered the results.  (Though I feel like “Farper” could be an effective insult.)

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!)

BLOOD LIFE This is mainly for dance apparel. Are dancers … vampires? Or maybe they’re sharks?
COUGARS GOTTA EATThis is mainly for sexy goods like thigh-high stockings and G-strings. Are cougars … sexy? (Answer: YES.)
DREAM YOUNG
FABULOSITY
FREAKS OF NATURE
GET YOUR BUCK ON
GET YOUR LOOP ONSame owner as above, but somehow I don’t think this refers to music.
GET YOUR STRUT ONSame owner again. I can’t figure out how BUCK, LOOP, and STRUT are related.
HUSBANDS HATE MEAnother one that just leaves me with unanswered questions.
I’D POKERFinally, one I understand. It’s juvenile, but I understand it.
LIFE IS BETTER WHEN YOU SURFJust look out for those vampire shark dancers!
LIVE GREATER
MARATHON STRONG
PERFECT TIME
RAIL LIFE
SEXPOT
TRAP GOD Alas, the bass has finally dropped on this mark.
WHO’S YOUR KITTY
YOU’VE CAT TO BE KITTEN ME RIGHT MEOW
ZOMBIE MODE

  1. Missy,
    I think that
    GET YOUR BUCK ON
    GET YOUR LOOP ON – Same owner as above, but somehow I don’t think this refers to music.
    GET YOUR STRUT ON – Same owner again. I can’t figure out how BUCK, LOOP, and STRUT are related.

    Are Rodeo references. BUCK ON would reference bucking stock events, Bareback, Saddle Bronc and Bull riding.
    LOOP ON would be reference to roping events, Calf Tie Down, Team Roping and Steer Roping.
    STRUT ON, I a guessing is when a Cowboy Scores well or has a great time, some times they strut.
