Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) October 07, 2012
Imitation is not always the sincerest form of flattery. After a year-long legal battle between two well-known sports nutrition companies, BEAST Sports Nutrition has emerged victorious over MusclePharm, Inc.
BEAST Sports Nutrition announced that Denver-based MusclePharm has conceded and agreed to discontinue use and sales of any and all material referencing BEAST Sports Nutrition’s trademarks including “Beast” and “Beast Mode".
BEAST Sports Nutrition’s trademark infringement claims were based on a MusclePharm’s alleged unauthorized use and representation of the BEAST trademarks. In a statement by company president Anthony Altieri, he said, “We’ve spent the last 17 years building BEAST into a well known and trusted brand and will enforce our trademark rights to the fullest extent of the law.”
BEAST Sport Nutrition’s attorney, Ryan Kaiser of Amin Talati, LLC, commented, “We’re pleased with the results here. MusclePharm acknowledged the validity of BEAST's exclusive right to use its BEAST trademarks in connection with dietary supplements.” Exact terms of the settlement agreement were not disclosed.
