redwhalecoffee_bagblue whale coffee

Plaintiff appears to be selling beans and ground coffee (but also ‘brewed coffee’) while defendant operates coffee shops. For what it’s worth, in 2015 the TTAB refused registration of the mark RED WHALE for beer, citing a prior registration for RED WHALE for vodka (applicant there is plaintiff here).

Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

This could be an interesting case. Plaintiff uses diagonal marks as a decorative element (See top) but also as a trademark (see left image in the side-by-side). Defendant has logo registrations for diagonal marks. Plaintiff alleges that defendant’s sole use now is on the stitching on the back pocket of jeans (See right image in side-by-side above).
