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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – May 23, 2023

Unfortunately, I can’t snark about specimens today; for some reason, none of the documents pages have been loading for me for the last few days! I’ve even tried using my VPN to make the USPTO think I’m in the USA, but still no luck. 641 new marks this week, 342 cancellations, and an unlimited amount of frustration about these non-loading pages!

(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

AMONG US – But you weren’t using this anyway, right?
BET ON WOMEN

CRYPTO IS QUEEN – Same owner, same goods list.
DEATH & TAXES – The only trademark guaranteed in life.

FUSION
GIRL GAINS – Always a joy to add to the “says girl, but they mean full-grown woman” section. [eyeroll]
GOD.FOOD.WINE.
IT NO MATTER! – Can’t see the specimen; feels like a quote from a meme or viral video?
JESUSITIS – Also as a non-religious person, I don’t get why you’d make your religion sound like a disease?

LMAOWTF – IYKYK.
MAVS – Owned by the Dallas basketball folks.
NOT BAD FOR A HUMAN – Funny, this went on the spreadsheet right underneath NOSTROMO!
OBI-WAN KENOBI – But you REALLY weren’t using this already, right?
PEACE AND GO FUCK YOURSELF – A bit of a mixed message.
PROUD PECKER – ARRGGGHHH, why won’t it let me see specimens???
QUEEN OF CLUBS – Finally, a golf pun that makes sense!
THE BAR
THINK. DECIDE. DO. – So, basically … the way we all exist. Every day.
UNTITLED GOOSE GAME – If you haven’t played this yet, DO IT!!
VAIN – I bet you think this trademark is about you.
WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM
WIFED UP – Not sure if the bride or groom wears this.

BAH! Not being able to see the specimens is really cramping my style. I want to be a jerk about them!!
