PRAGUE (AP) -- A British court has rejected for good brewery Anheuser-Busch's request to block rival Budvar from selling its beer under the Budweiser trademark in the country, the latest ruling in a long legal battle over the brand name.
Britain's Supreme Court confirmed Tuesday that it rejected on Jan. 8 a request by Anheuser-Busch to overturn a ruling by the Court of Appeal. The Court of Appeal had said Budejovicky Budvar NP should keep the right to the name.
