Guns N’ Roses, U.S. rock band and Oskar Blues, a Colorado-based brewery have reached an agreement following a trademark claim filed earlier this year.

Guns N’ Roses and Oskar Blues reportedly said in a filing on Monday, August 12 at the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California that they had reached an agreement that resolves all claims in the band’s original complaint.

It will be recalled that, Guns N’ Roses filed a lawsuit in May for trademark infringement, dilution and unfair competition over the sale of its ale, and other merchandise including t-shirts, buttons, and stickers bearing the name ‘Guns ‘N’ Rosé’.

According to the original complaint, Guns N’ Roses reportedly said that the brewery had applied to register ‘Guns ‘N’ Rosé’ as a trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in August 2018.

The plaintiff reportedly said that a cease and desist letter was sent to the brewery requesting that it cease use of the mark on all goods.

Guns N’ Roses has dismissed the lawsuit with prejudice.
