A-B wins NZ court case.
Anheuser-Busch president Stephen Burrows said in a statement that New Zealand's Court of Appeal reversed a High Court decision and ordered Budejovicky Budvar to stop importing, advertising, or selling beer under the Budweiser name.
Burrows called the ruling "another significant victory." In recent court cases, Anheuser has managed to stop Budvar from using the Budweiser name in Argentina, Australia, Denmark, Finland, Spain and most recently, Italy.
Budvar is sold in the United States by CT-based Czech Beer Importers under the name "Czechvar."
