Jack Daniels (“JD”) filed suit against Dynasty Spirits Inc. and Buffalo Bayou Distilleries for copyright infringement, dilution of trademarks, false advertising, trade dress infringement, and disparaging consumer reviews which hindered JD’s reputation and good will. Dynasty bottles, labeling, and package coloring are claimed by JD to be substantially similar causing consumer confusion (JD claims that Dynasty even asked retailers to place their product near JD product). Jack Daniel’s claims the label and trade dress similarities between these whiskies and its product have and will continue to hurt its brand.
