The Czech republic's Budweiser Budvar has scored another European victory in its fight with US brewer Annheuser-Busch over trademark usage.


Finland's Supreme Court settled by agreement Budweiser Budvar's appeal, lodged in 2000, against an earlier ruling.


The court's decision is final and cannot be appealed.


The move allows Budweiser Budvar to continue using the Budejovicky Budvar NC trademark in Finland.


The Czech brewer has continued to export both blond and dark versions of its beer to Finland throughout the dispute, with sales up 30 per cent in 2005.
