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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – October 26, 2021

I mentioned last week that it was my first week with over 1000 new registrations in class 025. Turns out, there were over 10,000 registrations in all classes that week; it was a record-breaker all around. (If memory serves, to compare, the whole month of January had just over 10k registrations across all classes.)

This week isn’t quite as huge, but we still have a whopping 920 new marks in 025! With a meager 195 cancellations to offset. Here are the highlights!

 


PART 1: NEW REGISTRATIONS

23This one showed up in my search because they were issued a new certificate. Originally registered in 2002.
BBALL JUNKIES
BORN DEAD“Skateboarding apparel with a goth vibe inspired by the death metal scene.”  That’s … a lot.
BURGUNDY
DEPUTIZE AMERICA
DESPERATE MEASURESThis feels lonely without the matching desperate times.
FVCK MASCARAI agree, but probably not for the same reasons they mean.
GAMEDAY GAL
GRIM + PROPERAwww, that’s a great play on words just in time for Halloween.
HAPPY CABBAGE
HORNY STONERI had such high hopes for the specimen. What a disappointment!
INTELLECTUAL ATHLETICISM
LUCKY CHICO
MERMAID SOUL
MOTORCYCLE IS KING
PLANT MOM
PLANTED. GROUNDED. WATERED. BLOOMING.
QUIM – 👀 I … uh … don’t think the applicant realized that this is an actual word. If you read romance novels, you may know this one.
RARE NATURE
REALITY TRIP
REDNECK NATION
RIDE HARDThis week’s theme is possibly emerging as “non-sex sex marks,” thanks to this and “quim” above.
SANTA’S FAVORITE
SHIRT YOUR MOUTH
TOUGH AS A MOTHER TRIBE Kinda sus specimen, where “Tribe” is tiny and barely visible. Though they disclaim “tough as a mother” by itself!
UNCOMMON NONSENSE
UNCROWNED KING
VET GIRL MAGIC
WITCH PLEASEAnother one right in time for Halloween. I see this phrase all the time! 😬

 


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!)

ALWAYS EVOLVINGI guess this mark evolved, know what I mean? [elbow nudge] [wink]
BRINGING BACK GODWell, now I wonder where they went.
CUTE 4 U
FITTING IN IS SO OUT
GOT TONSILS?
IT’S ON
OUT OF PLACE
PLUM PUDDINGJust in time for Christmas?  Or am I confusing this with “visions of sugar plums”? 🍮
REGIME
REMIX
SLIENT THREATThis looks like a spearfishing thing? But feels like a fart joke.
SWEATY HATNot sure why you’d want this on your hat, but you do you, buddy-boo.
TOO PRETTYNot in that sweaty hat, you’re not.
