…and in girly toy news…
A Federal jury just awarded Barbie manufacturer Mattel Inc. $40 million in a copyright case against MGA Entertainment, makers of the Bratz dolls.
In seems that the Bratz were designed by a former Mattel employee and the jury felt that the designer came up with the idea while he was still working for the toy giant.
Oh well, no worries. Bratz rakes in about $500 million a year so paying up, like, totally shouldn’t be a big problem.
