Brooklyn, NY – Absolut Co. Files Lawsuit Against Brooklyn Orthodox Jewish Company Over Infringement

    17

    Brooklyn, NY – Absolut Co. filed a complaint in New York federal court last Thursday to halt Brooklyn-based Happy Hearts’ production of what they say is a knockoff of Absolut Co.’s Kahlua coffee liqueur.

    The coffee liqueur, allegedly made by Happy Hearts Wine LLC located on 18th Ave and 45th Steet, looks very similar to Kahlua in its labels, bottle shape, color and the name – “Kahfua,” reports Law360.

    Absolut got wind of the situation when Happy Hearts filed a Certificate of Label Approval for a new alcohol label, which is required by the federal Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau.

    Absolut says it’s sent multiple cease-and-desists to the Happy Hearts company.

    The suit requests an injunction on the grounds of infringement, dilution and unfair competition, in addition to trademark counterfeiting.
