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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – August 3, 2021

Happy August! I always like heading into this month; here in Arizona, it means we’re now on the downhill slope of all the terrible hotness.

This week we have 487 new marks registered in class 025, including a few that will make you say, “Oh, are you SERIOUS?” But on the plus side, there are 255 cancelled marks in 025 this week, some of which may make you say, “Oooh, are you serious?”

 


PART 1: NEW REGISTRATIONS

CHILI PEPPERSThere’s already a CHILI PEPPER mark (for shoes), with an owner in Puerto Rico; this one has notes to clarify that it only covers the continental United States.
CHRIST OUR KING ETERNALLY

HIJABIFIED
HOPE CROSS LOVE
ICE CREAM MANA person wearing this shirt feels like the start of a horror movie to me.
LET ‘EM BREATHE
SMOKE ‘EM IF YOU GOT ‘EM“First use” is 2017. Even though this saying has been around for decades. Sigh.
SURRENDER
TEED OFFThis one is sure to upset golf fans. They’ll be totally … hmm, I feel like there’s a saying for a golfer’s anger …
VIRGINIA NATIVE.

And an illustrated mark that I thought might be worth warning folks about:

IDK. IDC. IDGAF.
