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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – January 25, 2022

It’s another lighter week, with fewer than 750 new registered marks in class 025. And it looks like cancellations are going back down closer to normal numbers, with only about 350 this week. Hard to believe this is the last gazette for January — time flies!
