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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – December 20, 2022

The trademarks are light, tender, and mild as we head into the end-of-year holiday clump. We have a mere 586 new registrations this week, and only 269 were cancelled. Have a happy Solstice tomorrow!

 


PART 1: NEW REGISTRATIONS

AWAKE NOT WOKE – Yes, because being “woke” is such a terrible thing. 🙄
BIG CRAZY
BOUGIE DAWG
BOXING IS MY LIFE – Just in time for Boxing Day. Yay, holiday jokes!
CLIMB NATION
DUELING DINOSAURS – Now I’m picturing two dinosaurs playing banjos.
EST. NOW
FEAR DON’T EXIST – I’m afraid it does.
GET UP AND RIDE
GO BIRDS – Owned by the Philadelphia Eagles gridiron football team.
GODBLESSUSALL – Feels like a kid speeding through their prayers.
HARD LUCK
HEALTHY 4 JESUS – Better than being sexy 4 Jesus, I guess?
HOOD & HOLY
IT’D BE A LOT COOLER IF YOU DID – Good sentiment from “Just Keep Livin Brands,” but the specimen is awful.
JUDAS PRIEST – But you weren’t using this anyway, right?
KISS MY UTERASS
MATTERS MATTER – I guess all matter matters, too!
MILD – Like that holy infant. Tender, too. You don’t want holy infant to be overcooked or too spicy.
NO CLOCKS – Nice sentiment, but the specimens have a ton of other text.
NOT FOUND – Is it a clothing line with 404 pieces? Yay, nerd jokes!
OUTER BANKS
PROMISE BABY – I wouldn’t trust any promise made by a baby.
QUEEN OF PIES – I’ve been a professional cook more than once, but never thought of myself as the reigning monarch of any particular dish.
RAUNCHY
SALTY DNA – Since we’re all big bags of salt water, don’t we all have salty DNA?
SO FAKE – Another exquisite specimen. I’d love to see someone wear this phrase!
SWIM, SWEAT, PLAY, REPEAT.
TINY TOTS – With their eyes all aglow? They’ll find it hard to sleep tonight. (Possibly due to the distracting light from their glowing eyes.)
UNLESS
VERIFIED IN REAL LIFE – Quite timely, what with Twitter selling blue checkmarks for $8!
WAITING
