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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – October 4, 2022

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!
