-- Goliath says, "
The LADY GANJA mark is confusingly similar in sight, sound, meaning and commercial impression to the LADY GAGA Marks, and your use of the LADY GANJA mark is likely to cause confusion, mistake and deception of consumers that Lady Gaga has sponsored, endorsed, licensed or is otherwise affiliated with your services, when she is not. Your use the LADY GANJA mark will also dilute the distinctiveness of our client's famous mark and constitutes, inter alia,
trademark infringement, unfair competition and dilution in violation of Sections 32(1), 43(a) and 43(c) of the Lanham Act." This Statement is from Brad D. Rose's letter on Pryor Cashman LLP letterhead.David says, "
I appreciate your concern about the possible infringement, unfair competition and dilution in violation of Section 32(1), 43(a) and 43(c) of the Lanham Act of the trademark Lady Gaga by the HEMP VOICE INC trademark Lady Ganja. There is one specific reason for choosing the name Lady Ganja. The origin of the name Ganja came about in 1680-90 and is referred to as the unfertilized female hemp plant. This is a mature female, which is a Lady, and the unfertilized flower, which is referred to as Ganja. Ganja by itself is a masculine sound, thus it has to be identified as a female gender. This results in the name Lady Ganja, a positive name for the part of Hemp used for medical and recreational benefits. HEMP VOICE INC is pursuing removing Hemp from the Controlled Substance Act Schedule I. Read the Hemp Resolution Bill." http://hempvoice.website/HempResolutionBill.pdf
.About HEMP VOICE® INC:
Lady Ganja Inc is wholly owned by HEMP VOICE INC. The objective of HEMP VOICE INC is to bring positive change to God's most valuable crop in the history of the world. Hemp was use for tens of thousands of years and for over 160 years in the founding of the United States until the mid-1930s when the Mexican slang word Marihuana was chosen to demonize Hemp for selfish greedy financial gain. HEMP VOICE INC is making positive change by promoting the use of the name Lady Ganja rather than the derogatory and demonizing name Marihuana. I have to continue doing God's Will.
