Happy Birthday Litigation Barbie

by Tamera H. Bennett Once again, I appreciate the Ask Before You Act blog allowing me to contribute my thoughts.

This month we "jump in the Barbie Camper" and go back in time for a look at trademark and copyright litigation surrounding the Barbie brand.  Nominal time spent on the Bratz dispute.

Special thanks to 3L James "Mitch" Mitchell for his research assistance.

UPDATE:

Post is divided into four parts.

Part 1 Parody

Part 2 Copyright Infringement

Part 3 Trademark Unfair Competition

Part 4 Domain Names/Cybersquatting
