NanoLabs Sues Coinbase Amid Nano Trademark Controversy

The firm that is responsible for the creation of the virtual currency known as Nano has filed a legal action against the cryptocurrency exchange known as Coinbase for allegedly infringing upon the company’s trademark.

The formal lawsuit was filed with the Northern District Court of California on February 24. NanoLabs has filed a trademark infringement lawsuit against Coinbase, claiming that the latter’s Nano Bitcoin futures and Nano Ether futures contract infringe on NanoLabs’ trademark rights.

“NANO” Trademark Lawsuit: irrevocable damage

The lawsuit states that NanoLabs has owned the “NANO” trademark since 2015 and has been using it to sell goods and services related to digital currency since then. The firm claims that Coinbase’s use of the Nano moniker in its futures contract products causes customers to need clarifications and will likely cause irreparable damage to NanoLabs’ reputation and goodwill. The company made these claims in a legal complaint.
