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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 09 July 2024

Well, if the USPTO folks were on vacation for the last couple of weeks, they’re definitely back now. We had 904 newly registered marks in class 025, with 424 previously registered marks cancelled. And a nice, hearty 167 applications in 025 were abandoned before they made it to registration!

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)

ACT LIKE A NURSE THINK LIKE A BOSS – I mean, nurses are totally bosses already.

AUNTIE KAREN – I’m Gen X, I know quite a few Karens. I feel bad for most of them.
