UPS sues California cannabis delivery companies for infringing on trademark

United Parcel Service sued a group of California-based marijuana delivery businesses for federal trademark infringement, deceptive advertising and other claims.

The complaint was filed Feb. 13 in federal court in the central district of California, according to Bloomberg Law.

The defendants sell cannabis products through the websites and, according to the complaint.UPS accuses United Pot Smokers, UPS420 and THCPlant of using names and logos that are “confusingly similar” to the package-delivery giant’s name and well-known shield logo.

UPS said it sent three cease-and-desist letters between last August and November, but the defendants failed to respond.

The Atlanta-based delivery giant also said the alleged infringement hurts its reputation through association with a cannabis company and further claimed the defendants have a reputation for offering “sham services” under the UPS mark and shield logo.
