The end of days? DOOMSDAY DONUTS and other trademarks for 12-21-12

Posted by ipelton on: December 21st, 2012

Some believe that the word will end today, on December 21, 2012. Today is “regarded as the end-date of a 5125-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar.”  See Wikipedia for more information.

There are a few trademarks filed with the USPTO related to today’s date. I presume they hope that today is not the last day, in order to cash in:

  • Trademark image – pending application for Apparel, namely, Jeans, pants, jackets, and tops
  • DECEMBER 21, 2012 WAS THE END, BUT I’M STILL HERE – pending application for posters; Short-sleeved or long-sleeved t-shirts; T-shirts
  • I SURVIVED THE END OF THE WORLD 12/21/12 – pending application for Short-sleeved or long-sleeved t-shirts
  • END OF DAYS – pending application for ‘Axes, diving knives, fixed blade knives, folding knives, hunting knives, jack knives, knives, machetes, swords; fixed blade knives, namely, kukris and parangs; multi-function hand tools comprised of knives, pliers, screwdrivers, can openers, files, scissors and saws; pen knives, pocket knives, razor knives, sport knives, throwing knives, utility knives’
  • DOOMSDAY AMMO – pending application for Ammunition for firearms
  • Trademark image- pending application for Safety equipment, namely, beacon lights
  • DOOMSDAY DONUTS – pending application for Doughnuts; Pastries

These marks perhaps inadvertently reference today’s date:

  • 1221 – registered for wine since 2010
  • BAR 12 21 – registered since 2006 for restaurant and bar services

 

If this is my last blog post ever, at least it was topical!

 

 

Saluting Our Veterans: Interesting Memorial Day Trademarks

Posted by ipelton on: May 28th, 2012

[Re-posted, with edits, from 5/30/2012]

Memorial Day is our country’s annual tribute to fallen heroes who have died while serving in our military. In good times and bad, in war and in peace, we are indebted to all of those who have served our country.

Where I live, in Falls Church, Virginia, the city will once again be hosting its annual Memorial Day parade. We are just a few miles from Arlington National Cemetery and downtown D.C., and all weekend we see and hear many motorcycles here for Rolling Thunder – we love to visit the bridges over Route 66 on Sunday to see and hear the bikes rumbling towards the Pentagon parking lot to gather for their parade into Washington.

Here are a few Memorial Day themed trademarks (click on trademark or image for USPTO record):

  • NATIONAL VETERANS MEMORIAL – Promoting public awareness of the need for reconciliation and recognition of all veterans
  • NATIONAL MEMORIAL DAY PARADE – Entertainment services, namely, arranging and organizing a parade on Memorial Day in Washington, DC
  • VETERANS OF FOREIGN WARS – indicating membership in an association of officers and enlisted men and honorably discharged officers and enlisted men of the Army, Navy and Marine Corps of the United States of America who have served in foreign wars of the United States of America
  • – (pending application) Promoting public awareness of Vietnam, the Vietnam War, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, other wars and military engagements, military service, and issues that impact veterans; and other goods and services
  • ROLLING THUNDERAssociation Services, namely, promoting the interests of Vietnam veterans
  • - posters; t-shirts, sweatshirts, polo shirts, cap

Have a safe Memorial Day!
