TI Beverage Group is owner of Vampire Wines and numerous ‘vampire-related’ trademarks for beverages, bars, and restaurant services, including Vampire® and Dracula® for wines and Vampire Lounge & Tasting Room® for a restaurant/bar.
TI recently ran into “VAMPIRE TACO”, used for food and beverages and restaurants. Now, they claim ‘Vampire’ is theirs and VAMPIRE TACO is infringing their exclusive right to the word ‘vampire’, at least for these specific goods and services.
Whether VAMPIRE TACO is going to be bitten, or whether they are going to shoot back with silver bullets is yet unclear. But this undoubtedly will end up a trademark saga.
