Although the numbers are down this week (fewer than 900 new registrations in class 025), the curated list is BIG. And the list of canceled marks is a bit sad in comparison.
PART 1: NEW REGISTRATIONS
ABUNDANCE OF GRACE
ALOHA FUCKERS – Ah, but is this the “hello,” or “goodbye,” or “I love you” meaning of aloha? That makes all the difference.
APRON DADDY – It may come as no surprise, this mark covers aprons.
BEARCATS – I hear that the bearcat (binturong) smells like popcorn. What an intriguing choice for a sports team mascot!
CLUE – Surprisingly NOT owned by the makers of the board game Clue/Cluedo!
COOL LITTLE ONES
D.SNUTS – Because believe it or not, DEEZ NUTS is already registered.
F THE PUMP – As an electric car owner, I say F YEAH to this!
FATALIST – As a part-time fatalist, I say F YEAH to this one too.
FLY KICKS – Dang it, now I have “Pumped Up Kicks” playing on the radio in my brain. You probably do too, you’re welcome.
FUCKING PATRIARCHY [supplemental]
GET UP WIN GO TO BED – Same owner as GET UP WIN, but this takes it that one important step further.
GO SLOW OR GO FAST – You gotta love a mark that really takes a stand.
GO WHERE OTHERS CAN’T
GRACED TO DO THIS
HEY LADY – And now I’m hearing Jerry Lewis shout this in my head.
I’M SATAN AND I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE – The specimen misspells SATAN as SATIN, which is … a very different meaning.
IMONVACATION – A new member of the “mash the words together” club!
INTO THE DARK
IT’S ALRIGHT TO STARE – I feel like this is from someone with a “cool” appearance, like a fashion hair color; not from someone with atypical physical attributes.
IT’S GOD FOR ME – Between god and satan, it’s a religion-heavy week so far!
JUST A KID FROM SLOVENIA
LADY DUCK – This fits with the “Baby Shark” tune. You’re DOUBLE welcome.
LIVE 2 DIE
LIVE IRIE CULTURE
MEETING – Now I have the music from the “Late for Meeting” video in my head. You’re TRIPLE welcome!
MO HUSTLE – Right next to MO MONEY on the spreadsheet. I guess one would often lead to the other!
MORE THAN A GAME
MORNING NEWS – I could wax for hours on how this is an outdated concept from the pre-internet era.
NOM DE GUERRE
NOT A WITCH [supplemental]
PAJAMA LLAMA – I love that we can rhyme “pajama” with both “llama” and “banana.”
PREJUDICE IS IGNORANCE
PRO PLAYER – This is quite possibly the most generic brag I’ve ever seen.
PUT GOD IN YOUR HUSTLE – The perfect blend of this week’s two prevailing themes, god and hustle.
RODEO HIPPIE – Now that’s two words I never expected to see together.
SALTY FLOW – I believe this can be treated with a short coruse of antibiotics.
SET APART BY HUSTLE & HEART – Hustle is hustling in an attempt to beat out god for the theme of the week! Who will win?
THE HUSTLE PREVAILS – OMHG, LOL! I guess hustle wins over god this week!
THE MARRIAGE ADVENTURE
TIT TEAS – I had to see what this was all about. Too bad they don’t have any decaf loose-leaf tea options!
TORNADO – Mostly covers ski and snowboard clothing.
TROUBLE – We used to have a tortoiseshell cat named Trouble. She lived to 17, and was a very good girl.
WINNERS WIN, LOSERS LOSE. WHICH ONE ARE YOU?
[image] Volkswagen’s VW logo – This one’s a bit different in appearance from their other registration. But you weren’t using a company logo in your designs anyway, right? RIGHT?
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!)
CREEPLIFE – Of all the “life” concepts out there, this one is probably better off dead.
FISHBUM – I know they mean the “person who spends a lot of time” meaning, but I can’t help picturing a fish with a shapely tush.
HARDWORK WORKHARD – This sounds like the name of a Dick Tracy character.
LET HAPPINESS HAPPEN
LIL CREEPS – Same former owner as the other creep mark at the top of this list!
LOVE LIVES ON
MAJOR INFLUENCER – If you have to advertise it, you probably aren’t.
MY Y’ALL IS AUTHENTIC
QUEEN RULES – Heck yeah they do!
RICH NOT FAMOUS
WORK HARD LIVE HUMBLE
If you’re the type who likes to read through the full gazette, you may have spotted a registration for MONSTER that had its class 25 goods cancelled. I’ve left it off this list, since another registration for MONSTER remains active.
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!
