(Information from: Tulsa World, http://www.tulsaworld.com)
TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A Canadian children’s entertainment company is suing an Oklahoma medical cannabis dispensary chain accusing it of copyright infringement.
The Tulsa World reports that Nelvana Enterprises Inc.’s suit filed in federal court in Tulsa last week alleges that Treehouse Dispensaries “willfully copied and is using a confusing similar imitation” of a logo that Nelvana has used in children’s television programming since the 1990’s.
Nelvana, based in Toronto, says that Treehouse Dispensary promised to stop using the trademarked logo but didn’t provide a timeline and neglected to follow through on its word in a timely manner.
Treehouse Dispensaries’ attorney says that the business “categorically denies” the accusations and will “vigorously defend” itself in court.
Nelvana is pursuing financial damages from revenue that Treehouse Dispensary earned while using the logo at its various locations in Oklahoma.
