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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – January 18, 2022

Happy Tuesday! It’s a “light” week all around, which is a nice relief after the last couple of weeks. (And also good because the USPTO sites are super sluggish today; a bunch of pages just aren’t loading right.) There are fewer than 800 new marks in today’s Gazette! And cancellations are way down; after a couple of weeks of 1000+, we’re back down to just over 500 cancelled marks this week.

 


PART 1: NEW REGISTRATIONS

1908 – Eventually, every year will be a trademark.

BORN IN A BAR – Owned by — SURPRISE! — the United States Marine Corps.
BORN IN A TAVERN – Samesies.

FAITHPRENEUR
FLY WITH OUR FLOCK
FOR THE DOPAMINE
GET HOT GET FIT
GO DALLAS – Owned, as you’d expect, by some random person in China.
I FIND MY PEACE
I LOVE MY COUNTRY, BUT FEAR MY GOVERNMENT – It’s sad that I can’t figure out which side of the political spectrum this registrant is on!
IF IT’S HUMANLY POSSIBLE I KNOW I CAN DO IT – This week’s theme: really long phrases.
ILLEGAL BUSINESS XYZ – I know you’re not going to use this. It just made me laugh.
IT’S FRIDAY ALL DAY

JUNGLE GURL

SON, REMEMBER ONE THING, YOU CAME FROM THIS SACK! – I have to quote their website. “Every now and then, our children start thinking they’re smarter and/or better than us. While ‘most’ of us want them to do better than we did, this merchandise provides a ‘friendly’ and humurous [sic] reminder of where they came from (amniotic or scrotal sac). Get a good laugh and make your children blush all at the same time.”
STUNT PILOT
TEAM DON’T PANIC – I’m definitely on the opposing team. 😆
THEN WHAT
