Budvar claims victory in the U.K.
A-B Inbev had asked the court to overturn a ruling by the U.K. Court of Appeal that has allowed Budvar to keep rights to the Budweiser name in Britain.
Under the ruling, both A-B Inbev and Budvar can continue to use the Budweiser trademark in Britain. A-B Inbev has contended that this will cause confusion in the marketplace, but the die seems to be cast.
There are currently at least 40 additional Budvar/ABI Budweiser trademark dispute cases pending around the world.
