CBS and The Bold and the Beautiful came out victoriously against Time Square's Naked Cowboy. Bloomberg reports, a New York federal judge kicked out a trademark-infringement case filed by Robert Burck, aka The Naked Cowboy. Burck is known for performing in cowboy boots, tighty whitey undies, a guitar and cowboy hat in NYC's famous mecca.  Burck claimed CBS breached his trademark by having  B&B's Oliver (Zack Conroy) appear on the sudser singing with a guitar and being clad in just a cowboy hat, boots and his underwear.

Burck cried foul when CBS had a clip of the show posted on YouTube where it was labeled, “The Bold and the Beautiful Naked Cowboy” and claimed it "confused" people with him. U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones denied Burck's ruled viewers can distingued between the show's character and his and said, 

none of his television appearances suggests a desire to transition into creating and producing a daytime soap opera.
