Trademark News & Screw-ups Moosehead files lawsuit against Vermont brewpub over trademark

Another beer dispute. You would think that when you come up with a name for your beer, you would at least google what's out there. I'm not even mentioning doing a proper trademark search, which, by the way, is the right way to do it. So going back to online searches. If they googled for just two words, "moose" and "beer", they'd not only immediately see links to Moosehead Breweries, they'd also get to read about all the trademark infringement disputes that Moosehead Breweries won. That should have been a good indicator to pick a different name. Apparently, some business owners prefer to learn from their own mistakes.
