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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – December 28, 2021

It’s a weird week, this last week of December; fewer than 500 new registrations today! But if you think that means this curated list will be shorter than usual, HAHAHA! Because there are 950 cancelled marks this week! I believe this is the first time in the history of this project that I’ve seen more cancellations than new registrations, and here it’s nearly double. It’s a Festivus miracle! Commentaries are limited, because today’s lists (especially the cancelled marks) are HUUUUUUGE.

 


PART 1: NEW REGISTRATIONS

AGE IS IRRELEVANT – Unless you want to buy or do tons of age-limited things.
BRAINS BEYOND IMAGE
CATPAPA
CRIME JUNKIE
EARN YOUR SUNRISE
FAITH>FEAR JEREMIAH 29:11 – I just read Jeremiah 29:11 from several bible versions, and I’m not seeing “faith” or “fear” in any of them.
GOALFRIEND
HELLA BLACK HELLA PROUD
HEMP MOMMA
MIDWESTY
MOM REDEFINIED
MOMMYING WHILE BLACK – Suddenly, moms are taking the lead for this week’s theme…
NEVER RIDE STOCK – Does it relate to rodeo? NASCAR? Skateboarding? [Checks specimens] Ah, remote-controlled car racing.
NURSES ARE DOPE – Apparently the same owner as this other NURSES ARE DOPE registration, though the owner info in TSDR is different.
PASSION WITH PURPOSE – Get ready for several from the same owner, all about passion:
PASSIONATE ATHLETE
PASSIONATE BASEBALL – Wait, so the … baseball itself is passionate?
PASSIONATE BASKETBALL
PASSIONATE FITNESS
PASSIONATE FOOTBALL
PASSIONATE GAMER
PASSIONATE SOCCER – Not sure if “passion” counts as this week’s theme, since they’re all from the same owner.
PERFECT AS I AM
RIĆH & FAMÉ
RIP ME OPEN
ROGUE
SALT WATER AND MUD – Is this a list of two things, or three? The specimen doesn’t help, it’s a guy in a Cornholio shirt.
SAVAGE SWAG
SHE PRAYS
SIMPLY POSSIBLE – I see a lot of “inspirational” stuff in these lists, but this one strikes me as especially bland.
SLOTH GANG – Sign me up!
SNAKEAHOLIC
TRUE COMPANION
VACATION – After many suspension letters in 2016-2018, this one suddenly moved to oppo this September. I feel like we’re missing some documents.
WESTERN SOUL
