A court odered injunction has been issued to force a liquer producer to stop using the image, the first name of Jimi Hendrix and a copy of the famed guitarist's signature on its bottles. The US District Court in Georgia does not restrict Tiger Paw Distributors from continuing to name and market the beverage as Purple Haze and use some other trademarks that could associate the liquer with the guitarist. The infringement claim was made by Experience Hendrix, an LLC controlled by the late guitarist's sister. Jimi's brother is involved on the other side of the case.
