Anheuser-Busch can’t use Budweiser trademark in Italy
First Published Oct 08 2013 09:57 am • Last Updated Oct 08 2013 09:57 am

VENI VIDI VICI: An Italian court has banned beer giant Anheuser-Busch InBev from using the Budweiser trademark in that country, and allowed the state-owned Czech brewery Budejovicky Budvar to return to the Italian market with its Budweiser Budvar lager.

BUDWEISER BATTLE: It’s the latest ruling in a long legal battle. Budvar has been fighting with Anheuser-Busch for over a century over use of the Budweiser brand. Budvar argues that only beer brewed in its part of the Czech Republic can be called Budweiser.
