Chicago-based multistate marijuana operator Green Thumb Industries (GTI) is being sued over its “Incredibles” cannabis edibles brand by Edible Arrangements, a franchisor of stores that sell bouquet-shaped fruit baskets. Reports MJ Biz
The report goes on to say
Edible Arrangements claims GTI’s Incredibles brand infringes upon its numerous federally registered trademarks, including “Edible” and “Incredible Edible,” according to a complaint filed Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.
Edible Arrangements, headquartered in Atlanta, also says GTI engaged in unfair competition and deceptive trade practices. The suit alleges violations of both federal and Illinois state law.
The complaint asserts that GTI has no trademark rights over the “Incredibles” name and that a stylized Incredibles logo is “confusingly similar” to Edible Arrangements’ own logos.
