An international incident is in the making, one that has serious people uttering the words intellectual property and Margarita in the same breath. On behalf of venerable Jose Cuervo and other distillers of tequila, the beverage extracted from the blue agave plant native to the small Mexico town of the same name, the Mexican government lodged a protest with U.S. trade officials this month over the sale of reputedly bogus Margarita coolers--that is, Margaritas without tequila.

In a dank jail cell on Jose Cuervo Street, Vicente Bermudez sits contemplating a future of no bail and up to seven years behind bars. His alleged crime: stealing 700 baby agaves, the cactus-like plants from which tequila is made. Police say Bermudez and Jesus Mora were caught red-handed at 3 a.m. just outside town last week, loading the plants into a half-ton pickup. The misdeed is part of an unprecedented crime wave in Tequila.
