Supreme Court takes Jack Daniel's case against dog toy maker | NBWA: America's Beer and Beverage Distributors

The Supreme Court said it will hear a dispute over a dog toy that got whiskey maker Jack Daniel's barking mad. The company that makes Jack Daniel's had filed a lawsuit over a squeaking dog toy that parodies the whiskey's signature bottle, and had asked the justices to hear its case against the manufacturer of the plastic Bad Spaniels toy. A number of major companies from the makers of Campbell Soup to outdoor brand Patagonia and jeans maker Levi Strauss have urged the justices to take what they say is an important case for trademark law.
