In the last week, something happened that many merchants wished for. Merch By Amazon has finally unlocked the upload for the US marketplace again. But something strange happened. The Automatic Review Bot seems to go crazy about trademarks. No matter in which Facebook group you look around, you notice that it's raining rejections! Even if the trademarks are just common terms. That's why we show you in this post the most important relevant trademark filings of the Nizza class 25.
Again, you can rely on completeness, as we work directly with the APIs of DPMA, Gov.uk and USPTO .
In the following you will find last weeks most important entries for the T-Shirt Business in Germany, UK and the States. So: Keep your eyes open and protect yourself.
Attention: This is my personal, subjective view of what sayings and words might be used in your listings, on your designs - I hereby explicitly point out that everyone downloads the lists and analyzes the trademarks relevant for himself. The complete 3 lists can be found below.
Remember: if a word mark is "filed", roughly translated, an "attempted registration" takes place. You still have the opportunity to file an objection. If a word mark is registered with "registered", then you will have to accept the registration.
LEGEND: EM = Union Entry ; DE = Germany; GB = Great Britain ; US = United States ; WO = WORLD INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY ORGANIZATION
Below you will find the complete entries for DE, UK and USA of last week as PDF.
