Supreme Court Unanimously Sides with Jack Daniel’s in Trademark Dispute with Bad Spaniels Dog Toy Makers

The Supreme Court has sided with whiskey maker Jack Daniel’s in a trademark dispute with the makers of the Bad Spaniels dog toy. The lower court had ruled in favor of VIP Products LLC, but the Supreme Court overturned this decision and sent the case back for further review. Justice Elena Kagan wrote that the use of the trademark fell within the “heartland of trademark law” and that the lower court should have taken this into account when making its ruling. This decision is a victory for Jack Daniel’s and other companies that rely on trademarks to protect their products.
