AUS: Gallo sues Lion Nathan for trademark breach
Speaking to just drinks today (5 November), a spokesperson for Lion confirmed that the company is being sued by Gallo after the Trans-Tasman drinks company attempted to register the 'Barefoot' trademark in Australia.
The spokesperson said: "As far as I am aware, Gallo have a Barefoot trademark, but not in Australia.
"The issue will be dealt with early next year in January or February."
According to a filing at the federal court last week, family-run wine company Gallo reportedly registered the Barefoot trademark in Australia over eight years ago, but this year Lion has been trying to apply for a trademark of the same name for both beers and wines.
