Quote of the Week: Obama Gifts Castro Stolen Trademark for Paris Trip

Monday, February 1, 2016
It is not a coincidence that Castro’s trip to France comes immediately after the Obama administration revived an expired trademark registration by granting an OFAC license to Castro’s Cubaexport, which is attempting to obtain rights in a trademark stolen by the Cuban regime and used in a joint venture with a French company named Pernod Ricard. This example concerning the Havana Club trademark, which Bacardi purchased from the original and rightful Cuban family owners, illustrates how far the White House will go to appease the dictatorship.
