Maker’s protects its mark

Maker’s Mark bourbon has won a trademark protection for its distinctive red seal designed to look like dripping wax.

The ruling by the US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit yesterday upheld an injunction prohibiting José Cuervo from using a similar red cap for its tequila.

The appeals court ruling also upheld a ruling in awarding costs to Maker’s Mark for its pursuit of the injunction.

“This decision is a resounding affirmation that our unique dripping red wax seal is a trademark of Maker’s Mark and is off limits to competitors,” said Rob Samuels, chief operating officer of Maker’s Mark.
