50 Cent’s Branson Cognac Sued By Remy Martin Brand

Infamous rapper/songwriter/actor/executive producer 50 Cent is in hot water following the famous French distiller Remy Martin’s law suit.

Filed in Manhattan federal court on the lawsuit alleges that the G-Unit rapper’s Branson cognac brand infringes on Remy’s trademark and their patented “jewel-shaped glass cognac bottle design.”

According to Reuters, the complaint made against Branson goes far enough to call the Branson design a “blatant attempt” on Remy’s branding describing the bottle as having a “circular array of raised flat and angled quadrilateral facets,” which helped the company reach worldwide notoriety after 35 years. The complaint states that Branson’s branding of their bottle is “nearly indistinguishable” and is a “near-exact reproduction.”

In 2018, Sire Spirits launched Branson cognac that has been available for purchase since 2020 and upon hearing about the lawsuit, the artist (born Curtis James Jackson III) shared his thoughts via Instagram writing:

“They are afraid of me already,” he said. “Branson Cognac is the new wave. REMY is #2 Behind Henny and worried about Branson Smh. I’m just getting started.”
