Mattel loses lawsuit over naked Barbies
CNN |
"Mattel Inc. must pay more than $1.8 million in legal fees and court costs to a Utah man who incorporated nude Barbie dolls in his artwork, a federal judge has ruled. The award stems from a lawsuit the El Segundo-based toy maker filed in 1999 against Tom Forsythe of Kanab, Utah, on grounds that his series of photos, 'Food Chain Barbie,' infringed on the toy maker's copyrights. The photos often depicted Barbie dolls placed in sexually provocative positions... Mattel contended the images might hurt its brand and lead some consumers to believe that the company, which began selling the doll line in 1959, might be behind the photos."
