On July 22, a pair of Clint Eastwood companies filed suit against two California cannabis enterprises that he claims have infringed on his trademark and trampled upon “his right of publicity.”
Los Angeles Times
- The two—of six sued—are alleged to have used Eastwood’s image to promote CBD products. In one of the suits filed in the Central District Court of California, the Hollywood heavy filed against the nonprofit CBD Green Labs. The other defendant is a company named Greendios.
- The lawsuit asks CBD Green Labs and Greendios for millions, an amount “sufficient to deter unlawful conduct by defendants in the future.”
- From the empty office spaces at Twitter to its startling paucity of tourists, The City in 2020 carries more than a whiff of modern-day ghost town. This exodus of actual, non-homeless San Franciscans and a rash of dispensary robberies have SPARC’s owner feeling his way through the new fog.
