The Toronto Maple Leafs Are Suing Snoop Dogg Over His Weed Company

Published

on

Hip-Hop legend Snoop Dogg has been known for his strong support of marijuana, both legal and illegal, and he recently established a weed business, called Leafs By Snoop. Well it turns out that one entity, the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs, has a beef with Snoop’s logo.

The hockey team contends that Snoop’s Leafs violate their American trademark in a variety of ways. According to The Independent, the team filed suit in the United States against Leafs By Snoop last year, claiming they have trademark on the word ‘leafs’ and the maple leaf pattern the team uses as its primary logo. The team claims that Snoop’s company logo looks too similar to their own.

It’ll be interesting to see what happens with this development.

Published

on

Actor Michael B. Jordan has signed a first-look TV deal with Amazon through his Outlier Society Productions company. Outlier Society Productions was founded by Jordan back in 2016, and has seen the actor co-produce and star in Fahrenheit 451 as well as produce Raising Dion, a Netflix original series set to arrive later this year.

The deal with Amazon means that the tech giant’s streaming service will have the first option on any new small-screen projects created by Jordan and Outlier Society Productions. Another requirement of the deal is that Amazon will ensure that all of Jordan’s projects are inclusive and representative in terms of the cast and crew hired.

This is the second first-look deal signed by Jordan since setting up Outlier Society Productions. Earlier this year, Jordan signed a similar agreement for movies with Warner Bros., which came after news of a new company-wide diversity initiative and the announcement of Just Mercy, which Jordan will produce and star in.
