BLK. Black Water Obtains Stipulated Judgment in Federal Court Prohibiting the Sale of Knockoff USA Black Water

Crockett & Associates acted as trial counsel for BLK. Enterprises LLC. Featured on the television program The Real Housewives of New Jersey, BLK. Black Water, a black fulvic mineral beverage, expanded its distribution worldwide to China, Australia, South America and the Middle East. In late 2017, to its dismay, BLK. Enterprises LLC discovered that its bottler was manufacturing a knockoff black fulvic mineral water called USA Black Water using the same techniques and trade dress used to create BLK. Black Water. Refusing to allow another brand to profit from its hard earned reputation in the healthy-for-you bottled water market, BLK. Enterprises LLC filed suit against the seller and manufacturer of USA Black Water. In November of 2018, at the eve of trial in the Central District of California, United States District Court, the seller and manufacturer each reached agreement with BLK. Enterprises. The seller is no longer permitted to sell USA Black Water and may not produce or sell another black fulvic mineral water. BLK. Enterprises demonstrated that it would spare no expense to protect its brand worldwide.
