Cuba gets US trademark to sell Havana Club rum

A worker checks bottles at a factory producing Havana Club rum, in San Jose de las Lajas, CubaThe US Patent and Trademark Office has given Cuba a green light to sell Havana Club rum in America when it lifts its embargo against the communist island, documents showed. The trademark, which was granted Wednesday, represents an end — at least for the moment — to a long legal battle between the two makers of the rum, Cuba and Bacardi, the latter of which produces the drink in Puerto Rico. The origin of the seemingly endless legal squabble dates back to 1959, when Bacardi, which had produced rum in Cuba under both its own name and Havana Club, left the island as Fidel Castro came to power.
