UPS sues operators of ‘United Pot Smokers’ for TM infringement - World Intellectual Property Review

United Parcel Service (UPS) is suing the operators of a self-described ‘non-profit’ medical marijuana collective, “United Pot Smokers”, for infringing its trademarks.

In the complaint, filed February 13 in the US District Court for the Central District of California, UPS accused the defendants of copying the delivery service’s ‘UPS’ (US number 966,774) and ‘UPS shield’ (numbers 2,868,000 and 2,867,999) marks without permission.

According to the filing, the defendants operated a number of websites, including UPS.green and UPS420.com, which purported to sell cannabis for medicinal use.
