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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – October 25, 2022

Note: I’ll be away next Tuesday, so I’ll combine November 1 and November 8 into a double-size post on the 8th.

This week, we had a teensy 446 new marks registered in class 025, and a whopping 305 cancelled. Spoiler: we don’t have to fret about MERRY & BRIGHT anymore!
