Director Monica Riva Talley was quoted in the article “Reaction: SCOTUS Jack Daniel’s Ruling Could Spark Survey Fights,” published by Managing IP. From the article:

“Monica Riva Talley, director at Sterne Kessler in Washington DC, agrees and says she was relieved when the ruling came down.

‘As a lawyer who protects a lot of well-known brands, if there was some sort of easy defense to infringement, that would really turn enforcement efforts on their head,’ she says.

‘We would have a very hard time protecting popular consumer brands because people would be infringing them in ways that would be mildly humorous left, right and center, and that would be a defense,’ she adds.”
