ANHEUSER-BUSCH'S TRADEMARK PROBLEMS IN EUROPE

     The Anheuser-Busch Companies "indefinitely postponed
negotiations to buy a stake in Czech brewer Budweiser-Budvar and
opened the door to renewed legal action in their decades-old
trademark dispute."  Anheuser-Busch says its "top priority now is
to settle the numerous battles over the Budweiser trademark that
has locked it out of key markets."  The trademark dispute has
locked Anheuser-Busch's "biggest product out of many European and
other markets because of a patchwork of agreements and court
rulings."  In many European countries, the U.S. brew is sold only
as "Bud," and in Germany and Austria, Anheuser-Busch is locked
out (BLOOMBERG BUSINESS NEWS, 10/12).
