I know, I know, it isn’t “Trademark Wednesday.” But I was away all day yesterday, traveling to the next state over in order to apply for a residency visa in another country.
When I went to the TMOG to get the new registrations list, it wasn’t loading for me, so I cobbled together the newbies from a refined TESS search. It was almost easier, in some ways? I’ll have to rethink my whole TM Tuesday methodology. TMOG was working again by the time I got to the cancellations. January 10 has 482 new registrations in class 025 with mark types 1 or 4. 310 cancellations across all mark types in 025.
