Craigslist asks marijuana businessman Craig Taliaferro to cease and desist using his name
SAN DIEGO - July 20, 2017 - PRLog -- Craigsweed.com announces it has changed its name to GanjaRoad.com to prevent any unintended confusion with online classified website, craigslist.org.
Recently, craigslist.org issued a "cease and desist" warning to Craigsweed.com President Craig Taliaferro regarding the use of website address Craigsweed.com. The letter asked Taliaferro to stop using the Craigsweed.com domain name as it "willingly confuses people into thinking it is affiliated with craigslist."
While initially frustrated at not being able to use his own name, Taliaferro - a nearly 50 year veteran of the cannabis industry - decided to change the company name despite having invested significant resources into launching the startup. The name change to GanjaRoad.com has already taken effect.
