Citibank Fights Usage Of ‘Citidank’ Call
Financial huge Citibank has reached out to a California dispensary over their usage of the comparable name of’ Citidank’for their marijuana organisation. With a punch line mentioning they are there for” all your danking requirements,”you can most likely see why the bank might have been a bit miffed about the dispensary’s picked name. Other circumstances of the same nature have actually been popping up in the last couple of years, especially a case involving GG Strains LLC out of Las Vegas and the Gorilla Glue adhesives company. Gorilla Glue successfully argued that GG Strains’ numerous marijuana stress names broke their business’s trademarks. The courts ultimately ruled in Gorilla Glue adhesives’ favor forcing GG Strains LLC to alter the pressure names in addition to the elimination of the word “gorilla” from their items in addition to any gorilla imagery.
Another similar legal battle pit Tapatio Foods LLC against the marijuana business Payoso Grow, where the food manufacturer sued Payoso over use of their look-alike mascot, a male in a yellow t-shirt and sombrero, for their brand of marijuana instilled line of hot sauces.

Citibank has asked a California dispensary that has actually riffed off the bank’s name to stop using the moniker Citidank– although it’s unclear whether any sort of official cease and desist has been filed. In a back page advertisement in Coachella Valley Weekly, the Cathedral City-based shop stated they accommodate “all your danking requirements.”
“Unless you are as high as a kite, you know that Citi isn’t affiliated with this company in any way and we have actually asked for that they stop using Citi’s name and logo.”– Danielle Romero-Apsilos, a spokesperson for Citibank, to the New York City Post
