Brewery, beer-making store settle intellectual property dispute

A Massachusetts store that sells supplies for do-it-yourself makers of beer and wine saw an eight-month trademark dispute finally come to a close. The shop, Strange Brew, had targeted a Virginia craft brewery known as Strangeways Brewing in the business litigation after Strangeways attempted to register its name as a trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Strange Brew's opposition to the trademark request was filed in May 2013, shortly before the brewery started selling beer.

The contract dispute cases were brought on behalf of users under the age of 13.The lawsuits are all based on the use of tracking software, known as "cookies," that can potentially identify users.
