Missouri brewing company wins lawsuit over trademark
Andrei Mincov's commentary on the original article
Here's the summary if you had to re-read this article several times to actually get the point. Shipyard tried to prove that SHIPHEAD is uniquely seen by beer drinkers as an indication of the source of the beer pointing to "SHIP" from their company name (Shipyard Brewing) + HEAD from their beer names (Pumpkinhead and Mellonhead). No so, said the judge. You're welcome.
