Multinational Adhesive Corporation vs Internationally Acclaimed Cannabis Genetic Company.  

Let’s start with the basics: Gorilla Glue Adhesive Corporation is suing GG Strains, the creators of Gorilla Glue #4, #5 and #1, in Federal Court in Cincinnati Ohio for Dilution, Trademark infringement, Cyber Squatting and 2 other counts of trademark infringement.

To be honest, I wasn’t very surprised to hear of such a lawsuit. On the face of it, why would someone name their strain after a federally trademarked product? I WAS surprised to learn that it is by no means unheard of. For instance, Dove Chocolate and Dove Soap, or Delta Airlines and Delta Faucets. They coexist, because they are not competing in the same industry. What makes this instance any different?
