Magic Hat Brewing sues small-time, new-brewer-on-the-block West Sixth Brewing...

Has anybody seen this - Magic Hat contending that their trademark rights to the number "9" extend to competitors using the number "6"? What is going on? The last time I checked, "6" and "9" were two different numbers.

I drank my fair share of #9 on the boat...but, now I am wondering why can't we all just get along?

Hey, Magic Hat, more craft beer = good!!

What do you guys know or feel about this??

reminds me of when Starbucks sued a friend of mines microbrewery. My friend was brewing beer called Starbot. He had been brewing and using the name Starbot since long before anyone ever heard of starbucks.

It didnt matter though. He was just a tiny tiny microbrewer. And starbucks is, well, a multibillion international company with an army of lawyers.

Suffice to say he couldnt handle the legal bills and ended up shutting down. messed up.

capitalism'd

new magic hat theme song........jimi's if 6 was 9

i think they deserve to lose the case and lose our support, cause you can't trust the upside down readers.....its like dyslexia x 9 or 6 depending on how you look at it

i say stick it to them and give the contract to west 6th brewery(or Eel River Brewery - first certified organic brewery in america) cause i don't want to have to have a occupy Brews at sea movement on board and trust me i will do it just for the sake of common sense

I initially was going to protest Magic Crap because their version of 'craft beer' is equal to that of the assuming taste of a dog fart. This should, by itself, be enough motivation to abstain. But no, lets add some insult to injury, a little fuel on the fire, some salt in the wound....

I am a total capitalist, 110%, and a TRUE capitalist knows that without competition there is no market place, without competition there is no entity to compliment or contrast, without competition there is very little room growth. Musicians are the absolute sole example of capitalism at its finest, you must make a product (jam), market it to a niche or demand (throw a party), set a price point (nothing is free so pay the piper), and you either have a blast and come back for Jam Cruise after Jam Cruise like Galactic, or you are a one hit wonder like... well, everyone on Jam Cruise kicks ass so we struggle to find an example to parallel. Think of a random band with one kinda decent song at one point in time in the vast world, but they pissed off everyone they played for and no venue wanted them back, plus the lead singer is on more blow than Ween has bananas, ok, so Kings of Leon, Magic Hat is Kings of Leon in the beer world.

Basics of macro and micro-economics seem to be lost on the folks at Magic Crap... but being a dick, passing with flying colors.

Magic Crap, you have officially f'ed yourself. You have f'd yourself so effectively that I wonder what it is compelling me to add to the f'ing. Well, Magic Crap, you and all of your micro-crap brews went from being off my radar to being the Bin Laden of my beer world.

They pulled their Magic Crap on another brewery also, claiming that Nine Pound Porter sounded too much like their Magic Pissin' Number Nine. :BOOHOO:

Well played indeed. I'm thrilled that you found 9ans Ölhall (Gothenburg, Sweden) in there.
Here's another one for good measure:

Actually Magic Crap's stupidity will never hold up in court. Remember when Intel had CPUs named 386, 486, etc?
The reason they never released a 586 but instead named it Pentium was that they couldn't trademark numbers and AMD kept copying all the Intel product numbers. They could trademark "Pentium" but not 586.
If Magic want to make a beer called Novum or something like that they might be able to get away with it. I definitely will never touch their beers again after reading this.
