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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 04 June 2024

Holy guacamole, how is it June already??

This week we had 613 brand new marks get registered in class 025. There were also 403 previously registered marks that were cancelled, and 200 applications were abandoned this last week before they made it through the process.

Note: The marks in part 1 are now fully registered and active! These lists are compiled from the Trademark Official Gazette, which publishes lists 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.)

 


PART 1: NEW REGISTRATIONS (PRINCIPAL REGISTER)

ALL HUSTLE NO HANDOUTS – Or how about UBI so nobody has to “hustle”?
AND THEY SLEPT HAPPILY EVER AFTER
BABY ZOO – A zoo full of human babies? Nah. A zoo full of baby animals? Cute, but also nah.
BAD ASS IS BEAUTIFUL
BAD BITCH EMPIRE
BEACH BALLER – It’s been around for years, but I still think “baller” is a sex thing. 😆
BLUE STATE OF MIND
BOOBY BRIGADE – Now those are some terrible specimens. Why take screenshots of your website when you can take a photo of your computer screen instead?
BOURBON TOURIST – The owner is a woman in Georgia. Kentucky is all, “She doesn’t even go here!”
CANDY TIME
CRAFT – Yes, you can still use this common word in phrases.
DESERT BUM
FLY
GOT GARLIC? – Maybe I should make a section of the spreadsheet for GOT X? marks. 🤔
GRIM GIRL
I HEAR THE DRUMS ECHOING TONIGHT – Owned by the widow of one of the members of the band Toto.
I SPEAK COWBOY
ISLAND FROG
LAS VEGAS LEGEND
LIFE IS WEIRD – Boy howdy, ain’t that the truth.
LIVE. LIFE. NOW! – Aren’t we all … doing this? Right now? If you can read this, you’re living life.
MAKE ATLANTA GREAT AGAIN
MORE THAN A PRETTY FACE
OUR LOVE DOESN’T END HERE, IT LIVES FOREVER ON THE WINGS OF TIME – Another lyric from Toto!
POSHMOM
SALTY WAVES – Eventually, every noun will have “salty” in front of it.
SHE BLOOMS WILD AND BURNS BRIGHT – Appears to be part of a poem by Butterflies Rising, but owner of this mark is Pretty Princess Media. (??)
STAY LAUGHING – The 24th mark on the spreadsheet ordering you to STAY X.
TO THE BAR
TOMBOY TUESDAY – Goes right next to Tracksuit Tuesday on the list. So let’s be tomboys in tracksuits eating tacos today!
TOPO CHICO – But you weren’t using this anyway, right?
TRAVEL GANG
WITHOUT A DOUBT

[sic] = The mark contains a spelling, spacing, grammar, or punctuation error which does not appear to be wordplay. The error is left as-is.
[removed from spreadsheet] = The cancelled item had been on my spreadsheet of marks, and has now been removed.
