Beer Logo Suit Filed

October 15, 1987|From Associated Press

A Texas firm that owns exclusive U.S. rights to the Corona trademark for marketing everything but the beer itself said it has obtained a court order to halt other companies from using the trendy blue and yellow logo.

Los Angeles attorney Joseph A. Yanny said in a prepared statement that he has filed a lawsuit in federal court in Los Angeles on behalf of Procermex Inc., of San Antonio to keep other companies from selling clothes bearing the popular Mexican beer's logo.

Earlier this month, U.S. marshals with search warrants seized more than 10,000 pieces of merchandise emblazoned with the trademark.
