Two big dogs in the entertainment industry are disputing over two similar — yet very different — types of leafs in their logos.
It seems the Toronto Maple Leafs’ parent company, Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment (MLSE), want Snoop Dogg to drop the trademark for his new ‘Leafs By Snoop’ line like it’s hot.
Snoop’s new cannabis line features a seven-point gold leaf with white lettering of the brand’s name as its logo. A trademark application was filed for the business back in November and Snoop’s products are exclusively sold in Colorado at this time.
MLSE filed an opposition to Snoop’s logo two weeks ago, asking the U.S. Trademark and Patent Office for more time to detail its opposition. The entertainment company is expected to argue the trademarks are too close for comfort.
The Maple Leafs unveiled their new 31-point, 17-vein classic logo in February of this year. The team has had seven logo redesigns since foundation in 1917.
So what do you think about the two logos and names of these brands? Could you get the two confused?
