LAS VEGAS, April 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Redux Beverages LLC, a leading dietary supplement manufacturer and maker of Cocaine Energy, announced today that Coca-Cola Company filed an opposition trademark application submitted by Redux Beverages for its well-known flagship product, Cocaine Energy.
Redux Beverages was notified on March 23rd, 2011 that The Coca-Cola Company filed an opposition to the trademark application through the INAPI. In its letter of opposition, the Coca-Cola Company argued that "the referenced trademark would infringe fair competition" and "lead consumers to confusion."

"We have already captured a significant market share in Chile," said Jamey Kirby, Founder/President of Redux Beverages. "Our brand is achieving outstanding growth in the country."
There is no requirement for trademark registration to sell beverages in Chile, and Coca-Cola has not filed any claim of this kind against Cocaine Energy's trademark fillings in the USA. Redux Beverages recently secured the trademark for Cocaine in Mexico with no opposition from Coca-Cola.
Cocaine Energy is popular throughout the United States and available in two varieties: Spicy Hot and Mild.
