It’s a fairly uneventful week, with 608 newly registered marks in class 025, and 392 cancellations. Looks like Mariah Carey has finally registered The Christmas Song That Shall Not Be Named.
(Some of these are legitimate brand names! I’ve included them on this list because those brand names are also words or phrases that may be used on the goods in question by crafters and makers.)
PART 1: NEW REGISTRATIONS
ABOAT THAT LIFE – I can’t help but read this with a big fake Canadian accent.
ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS – Owned by Lotion LLC, which is owned by Mariah Carey.
ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS YOU – Same.
BE GLORIOUS – Don’t mind if I do, TYVM!
BEST DAY OF MY LIFE
BLESS MY LIFE – A lot of positivity so far in this list! Though I’m sure that will change…
FINAL FANTASY – But you weren’t using this anyway, right?
GLITTER DRIP – Oh no, that’s going to get glitter everywhere.
GOOD PIZZZA – Note: three Zs in there.
GREEN SPROUTS – I grow radish sprouts. Fast, easy, delicious!
HORSE LIFE – Ugh, so many X LIFE marks. And this one has a terrible specimen.
I AM MOM
IT DON’T STOP
JUST BOMBED – I’m guessing they don’t mean “bombed” as in “did poorly at stand-up comedy.”
LIFE WIDE OPEN
LORD JEFF – Sorry to all you Jeffs; you’ll have to downgrade to Earl or Viscount.
LOST & FOUND
MUTUAL ADMIRATION SOCIETY
MY BABY BARKS – Uh, maybe you need to take the baby to a doctor?
OLD LIVES MATTER – Can we just stop piggybacking on BLM? Make your own damn phrase!
PROTECT WHAT MATTERS MOST – Goods: “underwear for facilitating more comfortable carrying of firearms.” So I guess we’re protecting our junk from accidentally getting shot with our own gun.
PSYCHO BULLY – Sounds like the kind of person who needs those special gun-derpants.
PUT ALL YOUR TRUST IN THE HOLY ETERNAL SAVIOR – Yeah! God will protect you, you don’t need gunderpants!
SEED LIFE – This may be the most X LIFE marks we’ve ever had in one week.
STAY FUNKY MY FRIENDS – Makes me think of Davie504. Slap that bass!
THE EARLY SHARK GETS THE FISH
THE PRETTY KITTY
THE UNITED STATES OF BARBEQUE
TOUGH TIMES MAKE ME TOUGHER
TRUST – Specifically, protective clothing for welders.
VENOM – Specifically, ski and snowboard wear.

PART 1-B: SPECIMENS OF NOTE
Here’s the specimen for BEST DAY OF MY LIFE; love how they’re using the ® symbol before they’re registered. Nothing illegal about that. [/sarcasm] Also, their website appears to be “down for maintenance.”
Here we have HORSE LIFE, which is following the standard set by a thousand other “[WORD] LIFE” designs: just the two words in the Impact font, shown in a totally ornamental way. And a beautifully staged shot, with the shirt dangling over the edge of the guy’s desk!
Last but not least, here’s JUST BOMBED. Another purely ornamental specimen, with the text on the front of a shirt. And looking at their font choice, I’m sure they aren’t imitating Nike at all. [/sarcasm]
Note: This is a curated list, and may not include all marks that affect you or your business. All opinions expressed in the snark are my own.
As always, the new marks have been added to my ginormous spreadsheet; please check it out for a shockingly large list of registered trademarks!
