. Vancouver cannabis store ordered to pay Subway $40,000 for name infringement « JO LEE MAGAZINE

National Post – Budway — an unlicensed cannabis retail store in East Vancouver — has been ordered to pay fast-food giant Subway $40,000 for trademark infringement and damages.

According to a Federal Court of Canada ruling, the store’s name and signage were too close to that of Subway and the use of a mascot in the shape of a subway sandwich filled with cannabis leaves and with bloodshot eyes damaged the U.S. company’s reputation.
