This month, the Supreme Court issued its ruling in a trademark case that pitted whiskey-maker Jack Daniel's against a company that sells a dog toy parodying Jack Daniel's signature "Old Number 7" liquor bottle.

The case is reminiscent of a 1990s legal battle involving the iconic Cape Cod-based brand The Black Dog.

Peter Karol and Bhamati Viswanathan of New England Law Boston join us to follow up on a previous conversation about a Supreme Court copyright ruling.
