A trademark fight that celebrates its third birthday in the U.S. District Court, D. Minn., in less than two weeks, is set for court trial on February 8.

Louis Roederer’s Cristal-brand champagne sells for over $150/bottle. Defendant’s Cristalino “Brut Cava” (not champagne, the defendant will no doubt stress) is less than $10/bottle.

U.S. Judge Joan Erickson will decide (assuming no settlement before trial) whether Cristalino is liable for trademark infringement or trademark dilution.  Roederer’s Trial Brief, after the jump.
