This Boring Cannabis Trademark Lawsuit is Actually a Big Deal

This Boring Cannabis Trademark Lawsuit is Actually a Big Deal

Tobias Coughlin-Bogue

A little over two years ago, a California company called Headspace Int’l LLC sued Podworks, makers of the popular line of TopShelf cannabis concentrates, for a trademark violation. The lawsuit alleges that TopShelf’s line of “Top Shelf Clear” products violates Headspace’s trademark for “The Clear,” a line of C02 extracts they peddle across the country. They trademarked the line in California in 2013, and began selling it in Washington in 2014.

“Headspace is arguing that anyone using the term ‘Clear’ needs to choose another descriptive word for their product,” Marijuana.com reported, back when the lawsuit was first filed. Two people with similarly named products, competing in the same market. Pretty straightforward stuff, as far as trademark disputes go.
