First Cannabis Strain Name to be in a Federal Lawsuit…. GG Strains vs The Adhesive Company…
We would appreciate your support in this fight, This fight is not just for GG Strains LLC, this is for the industry in general.
“This is where we have to go to the masses and get the word out, this is not just weed or about a strain name, this is everything we have fought so hard for, and developed in the cannabis industry, and this case can open up avenues we don’t want” ~ Lone Watty
Short Story: The precedent this case could set against parody names for marijuana strains could have a devastating effect on medical cannabis users and their suppliers. A primary concern for the industry as a whole is the number of corporate giants waiting in the wings, ready to pounce pending a ruling in their favor. So we’re drawing a line, asking for you to stand with us, and to show your support for GG4 — one of so many strains worth fighting for.
Long Story: The creators of everyone’s favorite strain — Gorilla Glue #4 or GG4 — are being forced into a legal battle with The Gorilla Glue Company, the manufacturers of various tapes and adhesives, over an alleged copyright infringement that totals five counts against GG Strains. When first approached, we were very receptive to The Gorilla Glue Company’s requests (anyone who knows us can vouch that we’re a pretty laid back group). Perhaps the corporate lawyers saw a soft target, but our receptiveness was taken as weakness and shortly after our initial conversations those attorneys dramatically escalated their demands. Our founders refused to lay down and open the door for corporate lawsuits in this industry.
Where it gets worse: The Gorilla Glue Company went out of their way to file their suit in their home state of Ohio, rather than our operating state of Nevada. Health concerns for Joesy, a co-founder of GG Strains, make long-term travel out of the state out of the question. For those reasons, our legal team has motioned for a change of venue. Hopefully Joesy’s health along with the unethical tactics used to file the suit in Ohio will be recognized by the court and a change will be granted.
Joesy Whales, Lone Watty, and the entire GG Strains team are forever grateful for the love and support being shown to us, and our GG line. We know what we’re up against, and we’re not about to stand down.
