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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – March 15, 2022

The numbers are low this week: 616 new marks, and 325 cancelled marks. I went into this list thinking, “Oh boy, maybe I won’t have too much to curate today!” HAHAHAHAHA, wow, was I wrong.
