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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – August 17, 2021

We have a meaty 755 newly registered marks in 025 this week. And believe it or not, I wrote “meaty” before seeing the first mark on the list! (They’ve had this slogan registered for other G&S since the 1990s; now they’re adding shirts and hats!) They’re offset by a meager 204 previously registered marks that are now fully or partially cancelled. And the second list is way longer than the first!

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!)
