Foggy Noggin “Cease & Desist” brew

Here is an interesting article about trademark infringement. On the surface of things one might not imagine that a small part time brewing operation could be any sort of threat to Texas A&M branding, especially for a small  (5.6 gallons) specialty batch of beer brewed for one occasion, they named “12th Man Skittles IPA”.

Remember when creating/using content, text or images, your time, effort and creativity can easily be shut down if you don’t do your trademark homework! Although I’m pleased with how these brewers turned the situation to their advantage, re-naming the batch “Cease and Desist IPA”.
