Coffee Company Slapped With a $2.8 Million Fine for Infringing Bob Marley Trademarks

Jammin Java should now pay Bob Marley’s household $2.eight million.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has dominated in opposition to a espresso firm combating a lawsuit introduced by two corporations owned by the late Bob Marley’s household.

The panel upheld a earlier choice by a federal decide.  U.S. District Judge Stephen V. Wilson had dominated in May 2017 that Jammin Java Corp would pay $2.5 million in damages to Fifty-Six Hope Road Music and Hope Road Merchandising.  The espresso firm had orally modified and waived the royalty cost schedule to Bob Marley’s household.
