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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – May 24, 2022

The USPTO took two weeks off from issuing registrations, so they could switch over from sending paper certificates to sending electronic certificates. But they still processed stuff; they just didn’t finalize until today. Which means that instead of the usual 600-800 new marks in class 025, today they plopped out just over 2400 new marks. (At least there are only 120 or so cancelled marks, so that half of the list is really light.) Hold on to your butts!
