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

Bonus content! Newly registered marks for the week of 13 February 2024

Hey howdy hey! I believe I’ve figured out how to highlight in yellow the ones that seem particularly concerning.

Note: These marks are now fully registered and active! This list is compiled from the Trademark Official Gazette, which publishes a list of the newest registered marks every week. (Some of these are legitimate brand names! I’ve included them on this list because those brand names are also words or phrases that may be used on the goods in question by crafters and makers.)

Includes: candles, tea lights, wax melts, potpourri wax, and lots of types of fuels and oils.
