Experience Hendrix Wins Legal Battle Over Vodka

Undercover Music is reporting that Experience Hendrix L.L.C. and Authentic Hendrix L.L.C., the companies that own the rights to all things Hendrix related (including the music) has won a copyright infringement suit against Craig Dieffenbach and Electric Hendrix Spirits, LLC.

Judge Zilly of the United States District Court today ruled that Dieffenbach and his associated companies have to fork over $3,200,000 for releasing a brand of vodka called Electric Hendrix Vodka.

The other also tells them they have to pull all of their Hendrix related products off the shelves right now and cease all related advertising.

The case has been ongoing since March 2007 when Experience Hendrix and Authentic Hendrix alleged that Dieffenbach deliberately tried to deceive the public into believing these were authentic Hendrix products.

Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. and Authentic Hendrix, LLC, are the family owned companies entrusted with preserving and protecting the legacy of guitar legend, Jimi Hendrix. Through celebrating Hendrix’s artistic and cultural contributions worldwide, Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. and Authentic Hendrix, LLC pioneer the standard for managing the name, likeness, image and music rights of a gifted musician and artist.
