AB InBev Being Sued Over Naming Issue

April 10, 2019
The parent company of Budweiser is being sued by the Patagonia clothing company for trademark infringement.

AB InBev is in legal news again, this time being sued by the clothing company Patagonia for a possible trademark infringement issue.

According to reporting on CNN, AB InBev was granted a trademark to sell Patagonia beer in the United States in 2012; however, they didn't start using the name until 2018, when it unveiled a line of Patagonia beer.

According to the reports, from its selling practices down to its logo, Patagonia beer, appears to have a look similar to Patagonia clothing.

AB InBev was recently in the news for another legal case, this time with MillerCoors, for issues relating to TV spots for Bud Light.
