Moet Hennessy brought the case before the High Court of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region for trademark infringement and passing off.

In the final ruling, Acker Merrall & Condit acknowledges and admits that it infringed upon Moet Hennessy registered trademarks, and passed off a product not the genuine Krug champagne as and for such a champagne.

The ruling details that Acker Merrall & Condit will conduct reasonably appropriate authentication procedures to ensure all products bearing the Krug trademark and/or any of the other Moet Hennessy Champagne registered trademarks that are to be sold by Acker Merrall & Condit in its auctions have been produced by and/or ultimately sourced from Moët Hennessy.

The ruling also states that Acker Merrall & Condit be restrained from dealing in or with any products bearing the Krug trademark and/or any Moët Hennessy champagne trademarks which products it knows or ought reasonably to know, not to be of the merchandise or manufacture of the company.

This specific action reflects Moet Hennessy's dedication to the fight against counterfeiting.

The group works in close collaboration with local and global law enforcement to defend and protect consumers.
