Taking a law firm to court?
Isn't that like picking a fight with a newspaper? Judging from the images, though, they've got a pretty good case.
Brewery sues law firm for trademark infringement
With more than 3,000 U.S. breweries in operation, trademark disputes are becoming a regular occurrence in the beer business. But a lawsuit filed by Oregon-based Full Sail Brewing may be a first.
In the lawsuit, filed in federal court, Full Sail is suing The Sessions Law Firm, an Atlanta-based firm that specializes in driving under the influence (DUI) cases, for trademark infringement.
According to the filing, Full Sail has been selling beer under the trademark "Session" by "showing the word SESSION inside a distinctive shield logo, using a distinctive font, often with a red background and with a grey outline" since 2005.
