Martha Stewart Wine Lawsuit
Goth inspired wine company Vampire Vineyards has filed a lawsuit against Martha Stewart alleging she is trying to tarnish the company's product by producing low-quality counterfeits.
The lawsuit claims that Stewart - who makes Gallo wine, has been behind a "malicious" smear campaign "to disparage and tarnish [Vampire] wine brands by portraying a mock label of Vampire Vineyards affixed to cheap, nondescript wine and spirits products."
According to the suit, Stewart's Gallo wine sales are less than one-half the wine sales of Vampire Vineyards. To catch up, the suit claims Stewart and her company, Omnimedia, are selling cheap booze with the Vampire Vineyard label.
Vampire is suiting for trademark infringement, unfair competition, dilution and counterfeiting, and is asking for $1,000,000 in damages.
