A-B wins NZ court case.

Anheuser-Busch said last week it has won the latest round in a worldwide court battle to prevent Budejovicky Budvar from using the Budweiser brand name.

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."
