A perfume for dogs that parodies Tommy Hilfiger does not infringe on the fashion designer and cologne maker's trademark, a federal judge in New York has ruled. Judge Michael B. Mukasey ruled that the perfume, called Timmy Holedigger, could not under any circumstances be confused with Tommy Hilfiger cologne, and he went on to say that Tommy Hilfiger Licensing Inc. "is 'advised to chill.'"
