As we launch into spooky season, there were only 636 newly registered marks in 025. They must be planning a jump-scare with more later in the month. 266 older marks were cancelled this week as well, maybe some of those will rock your socks!
PART 1: NEW REGISTRATIONS
ANTI-BAD – It’s log! It’s log! It’s better than bad, it’s good!

BE ADORABLE – These next “BE X” few all have the same owner, and the same goods: Socks; Leg warmers; Slippers; Non-slip socks; Slipper socks.
BE WILD – And so end the “BE X” marks for socks and slippers. Did they go overboard? Maybe a bit!
