The Prague Daily Monitor reports that the Czech Budweiser company has won the latest round of the dispute between the US and Czech companies – this time in China. The Chinese Government Office for Industry and Trade has found the Budejovicky Budvar, and not Anheuser-Busch is entitled to the BUDWEISER mark in China. However, Anheuser-Busch still has the option to appeal.

The IPKat wonder to himself (and anyone else who’ll listen) whether the Budweiser dispute is the most international piece of IP litigation ever. If anyone knows of litigation involving more jurisdictions he’d be grateful if they could let him know.
