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.
