    High Times nips sign row in the bud, wins trademark dispute

    No Comments

    I’ve had several blog postings over the years about the High Times in Niagara Falls. Apparently they can’t use the name now.

    From the Globe and Mail:

    A Federal Court judge has ordered Hightimes Smokeshop to take down its sign and pay $55,000 in a ruling that says the shop in Niagara Falls, Ont., has violated the trademarks of High Times, a magazine and website for people who smoke marijuana.

    Canadian park sues SeaWorld to keep killer whale

    From the Orlando Sentinel:

    The Canadian theme park Marineland has sued SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment in U.S. court, in the latest chapter of an international custody battle over a killer whale.

    In its lawsuit, filed last week in Orlando, Marineland asks a federal court judge to issue an injunction that would prevent SeaWorld from retaking possession of an 8-year-old killer whale that SeaWorld loaned to Marineland five years ago.

    Marineland says SeaWorld executives repeatedly assured it that the loan would extend for so long as Marineland was able to care for the whale, which is named “Ikaika” but nicknamed “Ike.” The park, located in Niagara Falls, Ontario, also says the purpose of the loan was to allow Ikaika to breed with Marineland’s only other killer whale, a female named Kiska, and that Ikaika became capable of mating only late last year.

    Marineland suggests that SeaWorld wants to end the agreement now because one of its few other breeding-age males — a 12-year-old killer whale named Sumar — died last year at SeaWorld San Diego.
