This company won a trademark dispute in Feb 2014 when Intellectual Property (IP) Australia ruled that the family-owned AussieMite company owns the brand on the black yeast spread, rejecting Dick Smith's take on the name, OzEmite. However in 2016 Dick Smith won an appeal in the Federal Court, allowing him to keep using the OzEmite brand name. The Ramsey family was ordered to pay Mr Smith's legal costs. The court ruling cost the Ramsey family close to $1 million. They have vowed to appeal the decision.
