The BBC reports that Anheuser-Busch lost its battle to secure the mark Budweiser in the European Union to encompass all 27 EU member countries. Anheuser-Busch does have protection in 25 of the individual EU states.
This is a continuation of the battle with Czech brewer Budejovicky Budvar over the names Bud and Budweiser.
Thanks to attorney John Berryhill for the heads up on the decision.
