from wikipedia:

In April 13, 2005, Mattel's competing toy company, MGA Entertainment has filed a lawsuit against My Scene, alleging duplication of its popular doll line, Bratz property's multi-ethnic looks, fashions and packaging and accuses Mattel of engaging in acts of unfair competition and intellectual property infringement intended to damage its market share, confuse consumers and trade on the company's goodwill.

The lawsuit claims Mattel altered "My Scene" to look more like the multi-ethnic Bratz dolls, according to news reports. The lawsuit alleges MGA gave Mattel major competition with its Bratz property and My Scene was susceeding to attract young consumers, so it copied the Bratz product. [1][2]

Mattel also said that the guy who created bratz gave the other company Mattel's secrets.

That is just some BS they made up to get them the money. Tossers.

Bull%#! like how at first, MGA was tryin to get money out of Mattel in claiming that the Myscene figures wrongfully copied the BRATZ figures despite it is all about competition? LMAO

Possible that is why MAttel made the claims since MGA started it

I'm confused. According to CNN.com, the federal grand jury awarded Mattel $100 million.

Well, many large companies have rules that if you invent something during your work hours, than that invention belongs to them. I work for such a company. They also have the employee sign an agreement to that effect. So although the situation doesn't seem ethically or logically right, legally it may make perfect sense. So the moral of the story is, if you are going to event something, do it on your own time!

Later!

it was over the bratz dolls
I know it was about the Bratz dolls. I wanted to know what exactly about the Bratz dolls the hubbub was about.
Well, I can't say I am suprised. This is what business is in america these days. Bratz is quickly coming close, and will over take barbie sales. Mattel got jealous. THey sued.

So aparently if you work for mattel and invent something, they own it. WTF? and they claimed MGA stole their employee. Stole? seriously the american legal system is a complete joke.

Any other place, and mattel would have been laughed outa court.

Maybe mattel should actually sell some decent products! and stop keeping the only decent stuff they make usa only. I sware I'm sick of seeing the trash they produce on our shelvs, while seeing news of new stuff we will never see.

Ok rant over, thx for watching.

So, an employee of Mattel's came up with the idea for the Bratz dolls while he/she worked there, and took his/her idea to MGA? Did Mattel have any patents for the product or produce any Bratz dolls before the inventor went to MGA? If not, Mattel shouldn't have won.
