Default Old Style Al Waha

During my last trip to Syria a funny thing happened in that I saw a different kind of Al Waha that had a logo of twin tobacco leaves and a sun. The packing was very old style as was wax paper tied with string and the logo on a piece of parer glued on. The guy I saw smoking it spoke some French and told me that the Al Waha from Jordan was fake and the real Al Waha is from Lebanon. He let me try some after I bought a throw away hose and it tasted pretty good ( a mix of vanilla and coffee flavours ).

I'm just wondering if anyone heard about this notion that two different Al Waha's exist? Anyone else tried this stuff?

Never knew 2 exsisted personally. Wouldn't that be illegal to place the same AW name on a brand if it's a company with a trademark?

But if it's manufactured then isn't what they are doing completely illegal? Wouldn't the other AW be aloud to sue them for every dime they have? It must be the same if not a knock off that just hasn't been noticed buy the bigger corporate AW. But maybe it's different in laws because of foreign countries?

The trade marks are different so I suppose it's some fight over the name. In the Czech Republic I know you can't buy Budweiser because the name is too much like a local bier ( Budvar). Maybe it's something like that?

Possible that two manufacturers are using the same name. I mean, it's the middle east. It takes ages to get a contract enforced in countries like Saudi Arabia, so would you expect trademarks to be as closely guarder, especially given the fact that they may be based in two different countries?
Maybe it's like AL-Fakher and FAkher/FAkhur?
