The makers of a specialty vodka named after famed Seattle rocker Jimi Hendrix have been ordered by a federal judge in Seattle to pay $3.2 million in damages for infringing on trademarks and licensing rights owned by the late guitarist’s estate.
The judgment ends a bitter legal battle that was sparked after local businessman and developer Craig Dieffenbach and Hendrix’s half-brother, Leon Hendrix, began marketing Electric Hendrix Vodka in 2005. In addition to the family name, the purple-tinged bottles also bore “an older” image of Jimi Hendrix with a large Afro.
