Canadian animation studio and media company owned by Corus Entertainment — Global News’ parent company — won a default judgment against an Oklahoma cannabis dispensary over its copyright infringement of a long-used children’s television program logo.

The ruling was granted after the cannabis retailer, Treehouse Dispensary LLC, failed to plead or defend itself against the legal action, according to an Oklahoma court’s judgment.

The Toronto-based studio, Nelvana Enterprises Inc., first filed the lawsuit in a U.S. federal court in July of this year, alleging that the dispensary “wilfully copied and is using a confusing similar imitation” of their children’s television Treehouse program logo, which has been used since the 1990s.
