How the heck are we at the end of another month? This one has flown by! Here in Arizona, we went from over 100 degrees to the mid-70s in the span of a couple of days.
Anyhoo, this week’s a gigantic one: 920 new registrations in class 025, with only a meager 232 cancelled marks to offset. I have a cup of dry Honey-Nut Chex, a can of Diet Coke, hot flashes that are driving me up the wall, and a cat who won’t stop getting between me and my keyboard. Let’s GOOOOO!
PART 1: NEW REGISTRATIONS
AMERICAN MADE AND NOT AFRAID
CHASTITY BELT – I … uh … don’t think a t-shirt will work for that purpose.
DADSHERO – I hope this isn’t a new trend, taking a popular phrase and removing the spaces and punctuation.
DUMBBELLS, DEADLIFTS & DIAPERS – Oxford comma, how I miss you.
ELEVATE THE CULTURE
FACE THE SEA
FOOD IS FASHION
FRIENDORFOE – Ugh, another without spaces!
GOOD VIBES. CALM MIND. STRONG BODY.
HOLY WATER – Deep thought: Could a vampire wear this shirt?
I FEEL FINE BUT MY KICKS ARE SICK – Do the kids still call shoes “kicks”? Or is that a stale reference now?
MOMINSIDE – Clearly the sans-spaces marks are this week’s theme.
OCEAN SHARK – Doo doo doo doo doo doo…
PRAYER OVER EVERYTHING
SHE’S SO FRESH – Not with these hot flashes, she isn’t!
SOURCE OF MY STRENGTH
THE FUTURE IS FEMALE AND BLACK.
TRIBE OF ONE
And! These aren’t fresh marks today; just a couple of older ones I discovered and added to the spreadsheet this week:
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!)
KISS MY TIARA – A bit more elegant than telling someone to kiss your rear end!
MOVING AND SMILING
NO GUTS NO GLORY
PRETTY BY NATURE
SHOW THEM CHRIST – A comma here would make this very different. SHOW THEM, CHRIST!
THE ODD COUPLE
TOM BOY ISH
Note: This is a curated list, and may not include all marks that affect you or your business.
As always, the new marks have been added to my ginormous spreadsheet; please check it out for a shockingly large list of registered trademarks!
