Reply To: Hi there I’m looking for advise on trademarks for my business.am looking at launching into the cannabis industry and wondering about branding and marketing trademarks for a business that has a similar name overseas.the brand name is ‘Lewcid’ whilst there is an existing company called lucid cannabis in Canada. While the trademark will likely be fine in nz I’m looking for advice for overseas markets if we tried to expand to countries where the Canadian company has also expanded to. I realise that while they are spelt differently there is a soundalike attribute to the names.are you able to advise on this and whether adding something like NZ to the brand is enough to differentiate overseas.thanks
