located and domiciled in the State of Nevada and the exercise of personal jurisdiction over the

situated in this judicial district.

M life marketing. The M life program has numerous members who have earned and received
rewards through the M life guest rewards program.

trademarks on the Principal Register of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO)

2014.
20. Defendants began using the MLIFE mark long after MGM adopted and registered
the M LIFE Marks and after they became famous.
21. Defendants use of the MLIFE mark is likely to dilute the distinctiveness of the
M LIFE Marks through blurring and tarnishment.
22. MGMs counsel has sent a cease and desist letter to MLife Wellness and Lutz
demanding that they immediately cease and desist from any and all use of the M LIFE trademarks
and provide a written response to Plaintiffs counsel by September 12, 2014. Defendants
responded but did not agree to cease and desist from their use of the MLIFE mark.
COUNT I
(Trademark Dilution under
the Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C. 1125(c))

23. MGM incorporates the allegations in the preceding paragraphs as if fully set forth
herein.
24. The M LIFE Marks have become famous in the United States within the meaning
of the Federal Trademark Dilution Act as amended, inasmuch as:
a. The M LIFE Marks are suggestive of the high quality goods and services
provided by MGM at its resort properties and, therefore, the M LIFE Marks are inherently
distinctive. In addition, the degree of acquired distinctiveness consumers associate with the
M LIFE Marks is high given the millions of dollars MGM has spent to advertise and promote its
M life guest rewards program;
b. MGM has continuously used the M LIFE Marks in connection with its guest
rewards program since J anuary 2010;
c. MGM has extensively and continuously advertised and promoted its M life
guest rewards program using the M LIFE Marks within the State of Nevada and throughout the
United States since J anuary 2010. It has advertised its M life guest rewards program at its 12
resort properties located in Nevada. It has advertised on billboards, nationally on the mlife.com
website, nationally and locally in magazines, and nationally and locally in television and radio ads

d. MGM has used the M LIFE Marks to advertise and promote its M life guest
rewards program nationally, through print advertisements appearing in magazines and other
publications distributed nationally, through the mlife.com website, and through the M life mobile
smartphone application;
e. MGM has used the M LIFE Marks at both its brick-and-mortar resort
properties, the mlife.com website, and through the M life mobile smartphone application;
f. The degree of recognition of the M LIFE Marks is extremely high among
consumers nationally as well as consumers located in the State of Nevada, where MGM owns and
operates 12 major resort hotel-casinos. In contrast, medical marijuana is a fledgling business
concept in the State of Nevada and consumers are not likely to have a high degree of recognition
of Defendants MLife mark;
g. Like MGM, the Defendants are using their confusingly similar MLife mark
on an Internet website, mlifewellness.com, and at a physical location in Clark County, Nevada;
and
h. The M LIFE Marks are registered on the Principal Register of the United
States Patent and Trademark Office.
25. Defendants use of the MLIFE mark constitutes dilution by tarnishment.
Defendants have created an association in the mind of the consuming public between MGMs
M LIFE Marks and Defendants marijuana business arising from the similarity between the
MLIFE mark and the M LIFE Marks. This association has and is likely to continue to harm the
reputation of MGMs famous M LIFE Marks.
26. The Defendants began using the MLIFE mark after the M LIFE Marks became
famous.
27. The Defendants use of the MLIFE mark is likely to dilute the distinctiveness of
MGMs M LIFE Marks within the meaning of the Federal Trademark Dilution Act.
28. As a direct and proximate result of Defendants conduct, MGM has suffered, and
will continue to suffer, irreparable injury and damages in an amount to be determined at trial.

and promotion of a medical marijuana business, including in connection with sales and offers to
sell goods and services related to medical marijuana.
34. The Defendants commercial use of the MLIFE mark has caused and is likely to
continue to cause dilution of the distinctiveness of MGMs famous M LIFE Marks within the
meaning of N.R.S. 600.435.
35. Defendants use of the MLIFE mark constitutes dilution by tarnishment.
Defendants have created an association in the mind of the consuming public between MGMs
M LIFE Marks and Defendants marijuana business arising from the similarity between the
MLIFE mark and the M LIFE Marks. This association has and is likely to continue to harm the
reputation of MGMs famous M LIFE Marks.
36. The Defendants commercial use of the MLIFE mark has, at all times, been
intentionally and/or willfully designed to dilute the distinctiveness of MGMs famous M LIFE
Marks.

will continue to suffer, irreparable injury and damages in an amount to be determined at trial.
