Cuban Trademarks Sold To Pay Wrongful Death?

by Tamera H. Bennettposted August 5, 2009

The Miami Dade Hearld reported last week that attorneys' representing relatives of the late Bobby Fuller, who won a $100 million wrongful-death judgment against the Cuban government, are requesting the court order the sale of U.S. Trademark Registrations owned by the Cuban Government.

Talk about political mumbu-jumba as to whether or not the heirs could force this to occur and how a valuation would be determined for US rights only for each of the brands mentioned:  Cohiba, Esplendidos, La Perla, Havana Club,  ETECSA.

The Miami Dade Hearld article does a great job of spelling things out. Also take a look at what IPKat has to say in this post.
