It’s a fairly light week for new marks; fewer than 800 across both registers! To contrast, it’s a strangely heavy day for cancellations, with over 400 marks (usually it’s 200 or fewer)! I wonder if the USPTO is cleaning house; the majority of these cancellations are marks from the ’70s and ’80s, predating when registrations had to upload an image as the “drawing”. A lot of them are also known brands or properties like DORITOS, LIFE SAVERS, and MISS UNIVERSE, which you wouldn’t use anyway, so I’m not including them in the bottom list.
PART 1: NEW REGISTRATIONS
70% ADULT – Totally me on a good day.
AND THE BEET GOES ON – Surprised this guy isn’t also going after “Turnip the beat.”
BITCHES WITH ATTITUDE
BOBA SNOB – Also totally me. I only want the black tapioca balls in a vanilla slush.
BOSS BY NATURE
BUILD YOUR BODY – Done! I’ve built a broad, soft, and comfortable one.
CHOOSE YOUR MOOD
COMFORTABLY SOLID – Exactly! This is how I’ve built my body!
CROWNS AND DIAMONDS
CYCLE SNOB – And “snob” jumps out to an early lead as this week’s theme!
DO NO EVIL
EINSTEIN – The 27 pages of specimens are a real trip. So many products under so many brand names!
FUCK CHILD SUPPORT – But you weren’t making shirts of this phrase anyway, right? RIGHT?
HAPPY LIFE DAY – Feels like a play on Wookiee Life Day, but the specimen graphic looks like Cousin It.
I AM WORTHY
IT COSTS $0 TO BE A NICE PERSON – And yet sometimes, the price in my patience is so much more.
IT’S AN LA THING – Unclear whether this is a brag on Los Angeles or Louisiana.
LEGENDS LIVE LIFE – This was like a tongue twister for my fingers!
LIFE MY WAY
LOVE BLESS AMERICA
MOM COME PICK ME UP – Maybe now and then, call your mom without asking for a favor, hmm?
MOUNTAINS ARE MY MEDICINE [Supplemental]
MY KIND OF WEIRD
OF COURSE, LOVE
P.S. CALL YOUR MOM – On the other hand, mom realizes she has a phone too, right?
REAL AS F**K
REAL HOT GIRL SHIT – Does the girl have a fever and is shitting? Or is this about the temperature of the girl’s shit?
SAVAGE YET CIVILIZED
SAY LESS MEAN MORE
SO YOU SEE
SORRY I OFFEND YOU – Getting real “sorry not sorry” vibes from this one.
SUGAR, SPICE & EVERYTHING CHRIST – File another mark under “I just don’t understand religion.”
TRUST YOUR SAUCE – We’re almost to the point where I’ll need to make a “sauce” section of the spreadsheet!
USED BY GOD
VICTORY AND VALOR
PART 2: CANCELLED MARKS
(Standard disclaimer: Always double-check these words and phrases before using them in your designs, to make sure there isn’t a separate registration that is still live and active. Some marks have multiple registrations!)
BABY BOOM – OK, boomer.
BEST OF CLASS
DAVID – And millions of Davids did rejoice!
LITTLE MISS TENNIS – I have a personal loathing for the whole “little miss” concept.
MAN OF THE PEOPLE
OUTDOORS MAN – Whew, that was a surprising run of dude-related marks!
PEOPLE ARE POISON – Totally me on just about every day.
Note: This is a curated list, and may not include all marks that affect you or your business.
As always, the new marks have been added to my ginormous spreadsheet; please check it out for a shockingly large list of registered trademarks!
