Administrative note: I’ll be away from my computer for the next two Tuesdays, September 6 and 13. I’ll do catch-up lists as soon as I can!
We have pretty average numbers this week: 654 newly registered trademarks in class 025, and 291 cancellations. I also added some musical acts to the pop culture section of the spreadsheet, like MARSHMELLO and WOLFMOTHER. I didn’t include them on this list, because you weren’t using those anyway, right?
PART 1: NEW REGISTRATIONS
ALL FAMILY NO FRIENDS
BABY SHARK – Pinkfong did it! The list of goods is HUGE.
BLESSED AND BLINGY
C.O.Z.Y – So many of these miss the last period. I wish I knew why!
CHIEF FOODIE OFFICER
COCO ET DOLCE
COCUS POCUS – It’s a “lifestyle brand,” but I still put it in the Halloween section of the spreadsheet.
CREATURES OF CHAOS
DANCE UNTIL DEATH – If you hate dancing, death might be a relief.
DOING IT FOR – Let’s hope they don’t go after everyone who includes additional text.
DON’T EVEN DRINK ABOUT IT
DON’T WORRY BE HAPPY – Legit, owned by Bobby McFerrin!
EQUITY STATE OF MIND
ET AL. ETC.
FANS PLAY LOUDER
GET THE GOODS
GNOME KITTY – A combo of two hot internet trends. (I’m so tired of those gnomes.)
GRACE & GLORY
HAVE A NICE GAME
HOOKERS & BLOW – A pairing as classic as peanut butter & jelly.
HUMBLE OVER EVERYTHING
HUSTLE LIGHT, HUSTLE RIGHT – Or, how about … hustle zero, be a hero? (I’m so tired of hustle culture.)
I LIKE IT DIRTY
I PUT THAT SHIT ON TODAY – You read that right, this is “shit,” not “shirt.”
KING OF THE GAME
LET’S GET SKIN TO SKIN, BABY! – The only goods are “infantwear.”
LOVE YOUR SIZE ALWAYS
OURO – This means “gold” in Portuguese. And it’s also something crypto-related. (I’m so tired of crypto.)
OWN WHO YOU ARE
PEE WITH FREEDOM – Registered for pants. Included for laughs. (I’m so tired of peeing in my pants.)
PRETTY GIRL SAVAGE
REBEL BABE – The alternate title for Rogue One. Didn’t do well with focus groups. 😆
SAFETY SECOND – So … danger first? Owned by “Go Fast Don’t Die LLC,” so I guess so!
START A CONVERSATION ABOUT GOD WITH A SHIRT. – Or, hear me out on this: Matthew 6:5-8.
STATE OF PANIC
TOP BANANA – This feels like such a throwback. 23-skidoo!
UNITED WE RISE ABOVE
WHEN IS ENOUGH…ENOUGH? – When the only trademarks registered are legit brands!
