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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – October 18, 2022

Happy Tuesday! We have an average-ish collection of 772 newly registered trademarks in class 025, but a paltry 107 cancellations! (And the cancellations worth curating were … meager.)

 


PART 1: NEW REGISTRATIONS
