This is not quite right - Medmen went for a TRADEMARK on the word cannabis, not a copyright. Our Intellectual property attorney Abe Cohn discusses it in Leafly:

I totally agree eaglehawk. Their greed is very unbecoming to say the least. I guess it is the onslaught of "big cannabis" (like big Pharma), which we feared. I prefer to shop at the smaller places in the hope that our support will keep them from getting gobbled up by the big boys like MedMen!

This company is turning into the Apple of Cannabis, and while it serves a purpose ultimately it is not a great entity. Between trying to trademark pot leaf designs and cannabis related words, to pricing buds $15-20 above their standard market rates (without taxes!), Medmen will start to generate a negative reputation.
