Every week, a precursory glance through the USPTO’s trademark database reveals a number of new noteworthy trademarks. Last week was no exception, so we will use this space to highlight either recent filings or registrations at the USPTO.

In the weeks following President Trump’s now-deleted tweet, over twenty trademark applications have been filed pertaining to “covfefe.” Many simply are word marks for COVFEFE; meanwhile, two applications have been filed for both COVFEFE COFFEE and #COVFEFE, and one application attempts to make COVFEFE into an acronym.
Unsurprisingly, none of the applicants have a connection to the President. Unless the President was able to make a valid use in commerce of COVFEFE third-parties may have a possible claim to rights in the mark by others willing to invest in registration and use in commerce of the mark.
