National Beverage Corp. has won its an appeal in a lawsuit from Hansen Beverage Co. over the packaging for its energy drink.

In October, Hansen Beverage Co. tried to sue National Beverage due to the bottle of its 'Freek' energy drink allegedly being too similar to the packaging of Hansen's 'Monster' drink.

The beverage maker said yesterday (11 July) that the court overturned the injunction that had previously barred the National Beverage from selling its energy drink.

National Beverage's chairman and CEO Nick Caporella said: "The costs, both tangible and intangible, were excessive, but National had no choice but to fight for industry principles."

Caporella added: "We are very pleased that the Ninth Circuit has attested to the law and that competition in the energy drink business will succeed on its product's merits."
