Sony Sues Craft Brewer Over Their Beer, "Breaking Bud"

Legal trouble is brewing for a company that launched a Breaking Bad-inspired beer without a license from Sony Pictures Television. 

Sony on Tuesday sued Knee Deep Brewing, claiming the company intentionally imitated the Breaking Bad logo and other design elements in order to capitalize on the fame of the AMC hit series, which "has been ranked by the Guinness World Records as the most critically acclaimed show of all time and has been cited as one of the greatest television series in history." 

The copying is gratuitous, Sony argues, and is clearly designed to avoid the difficulty of creating a unique brand.
