Anheuser-Busch allowed to use the word 'Bud' on its beer in Austria after local court lifts injunction that had given Budejovicky Budvar sole entitlement to name in the country

LOS ANGELES , October 26, 2011 () – Anheuser-Busch InBev NV can once again use the word “Bud” on its beer in Austria after a local court lifted an injunction that had given Budejovicky Budvar NP the sole entitlement to the name in the country, Bloomberg reported Oct. 26.

A Viennese commercial court lifted the injunction that had prevented Anheuser-Busch from selling beer under the name American Bud in Austria since 1999.

Austria’s Supreme Court previously ruled against Budvar in August.
