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

Trademark Tuesday – New and Cancelled Marks – 27 February 2024

This week in class 025: 554 new registrations, 379 cancelled registrations, and 163 abandoned applications. And it’s somehow suddenly the end of February. Where does the time go??

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)

“BABY JUICE” ( MALE SPERM ) – Fantastic, let’s start the week gross.
ABC’S OF JUNETEENTH [sic]
ADVENTURE NORTH
AETHER
AWE – Two single words this early? This does not bode well for the week.
BE HEALED. BE WHOLE. BE FREE.
BE WE
BITCHIN’ – Totally tubular, rockin’ radical! Do the kids today even say “bitchin” anymore?
BRUDDERS
BRUNCH – The single word marks are adding up.
BÉ UNLIMITED – Note the acute accent mark on that E in BÉ.
COOL LYFE – I’m gonna count this as an “X LIFE” mark. 2 week streak!
CUDDLY AF – We now have over 20 “AF” marks, time to give them their own section of the spreadsheet.
DART
DEADBEAT GIRL – Now my brain is singing this to the tune of “West End Girls.” You’re welcome, Gen Xers.
DETOUR – Good gravy, this is a LOT of single-word marks so far.
DO REMARKABLE WORK
DRINKING BOOZE IS OLD NEWS – Yes! Sober is the new hotness.
FIVE FINGER DISCOUNT – Nothing like naming your brand after petty theft.
FUCKDECORUM – I love that I can just type out swears willy-nilly in these lists.
GOD MADE QUEENS
HEAD NURSE IN CHARGE – Aren’t Head Nurse and Charge Nurse different things?
HERE TO POUR
HEROES & VILLAINS – I put this under “occupations” on the spreadsheet. Nothing else seemed to fit.
HERSTORICALLY BLACK
IT’S YOURS! – Hooray, depending on what “it” is. Money? A snack? A broken toe?
LUCKY ROSE
MIMOSA MAFIA
MOMTOURAGE
PATIENCE MAKES GREATNESS
PRAY FOR ME. I’M PETTY. – I’m petty, but no need for prayers. (Unless you’re praying to Klombadrov.)
REEL HOMIES – Whew, I was worried we wouldn’t have a fishing phrase this week!
RUMBLER
SALTY SQUAD – Salty in the beach/saltwater sense, not in the opinionated/sassy sense.
SHARK LIFE
SISTERHOOD OVER SABOTAGE – Women should support women.
SPECTER – What a great opportunity to share Radiohead’s “Spectre,” which is better than the other song they chose for that Bond movie. Don’t @ me.
STRONG SEXY MAMMAS – I’ve seen MAMA and MOMMA, but rarely ever see MAMMA.
SUCCESS GOAT
THANKS – No specimen, because it’s based on a UK registration. Here’s the Thanks company website.
THE STRING CHEESE INCIDENT – When the mark is a band, I’ll give you one of their songs. Here’s “Sirens“.
THE VIBE YOU NEED
THEME PARKIST – Now that I live in Europe, I have a bunch of new theme parks to visit!
THIS MEANS WARP
TOUCH
WEEKLY SCHEDULE – This would be shitty on a notebook, but it’s just confusing for clothing.

 


PART 1-B: NEW REGISTRATIONS (SUPPLEMENTAL REGISTER)

BEANTOWN BEANFEST

DREAM THE IMPOSSIBLE, BELIEVE THE IMPOSSIBLE, AND GOD WILL DO THE IMPOSSIBLE.

 


PART 1-C: OLDER REGISTERED MARKS I DISCOVERED THIS WEEK

VIRGIN – Because I know you all want to wear this on the front of a shirt.

 


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!)

PART 3: ABANDONED APPLICATIONS! 🎉

Here are the applications that were abandoned this week in class 025, with mark drawing code 4. The most likely cause was the applicant not submitting corrected, updated, or informative material by the USPTO’s deadline. Ding, dong, these witches are dead!

[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.
