>>SCOTUS Sides With Jack Daniel's In Dog Toy Case

(Washington, DC) -- The U.S. Supreme Court is siding with Jack Daniel's in a ruling announced Thursday involving a dog toy. The distiller had sued VIP Products over a dog toy that resembles Jack Daniel's bottles claiming it violated federal trademark law. The Supreme Court was unanimous in its ruling after Jack Daniel's argued an appeals court was wrong in saying the toy was "non-commercial" and had constitutional protection. However, the High Court didn't grant Jack Daniel's request to toss the test the lower court used when it ruled in favor of the toy maker. That would have made it easier for trademark holders to sue over parodies of their marks.
