Well, it could have been worse!

Mattel, the makers of Barbie, sued the makers of the Bratz dolls because their creator was working at Mattel when he came up with the concept for the Bratz hos.

Well, Mattel won the case and they wanted upwards of $2 billion!!!!

Thankfully for them, a California jury only awarded Mattel $40 million on Tuesday.

The Bratz dolls bring in around $500 million annually.

    Yep that's the way it goes, if you work for someone else and you develop characters on their time, then they own it. Ask Stan Lee who created Spider-man. He does not own that character either!

    I was a little confused about this. Did the developer come up w/ the Bratz dolls and work on the designs while on company time at Mattel or after? Does anyone know?

    Good!! I hate Bratz! I'm a pretty cool mom but i would never buy those.
    What kind of mother would buy her kids little slut dolls! At least Barbie doesn't look like a mini Pam Anderson craked out street walker.

    Sure, Perez, gays like him and a few 10 year old girls goes to Barbie conventions every year. The rest of us don't. This is the most lame news Perez has served so far this year.



  15. 15

    my son calls them slut dolls and won't allow his 5 1/2 year old daughter to play with them (or dress like them)



  16. 16

    fuck a plastic ho



  17. 17

    I do NOT care about Dolls Perez!!



  18. 18

    I can't believe any mother would actually buy such a skanky toy for her little girl. Brats are nasty and ghetto. Yay for Mattel!!!



  19. 19

    damn it! i was hoping mattel would shut bratz down. I used to think barbie was slutty so what does that say about bratz.

    Re: PunkyBrewstein
    No YOU ARE STUPID. He was an EMPLOYEE for MATTEL. He says he did it DURING HIS BREAK from Mattel therefore, WHY would Mattel be entitled to something done on someone's OFF time? That is the question dummy.
    STFU stupid if you don't understand a question. Try NOT speaking out your ass. I'm asking for actual DEATAILS from the case itself. You know… what FACTS did Mattel provide that they have legal dibbs to Bratz dolls?
    Your mental capacity is clearly lacking.



  21. 21

    The doll on the right looks just like Paris Hilton!!
    She should sue Mattel!
    lol



  22. 22

    Bratz started out online as dress up dollz, I don't understand how some1 at Matel "created" them. They might have "taken advantage and gone through with the idea" Oh well



  23. 23

    Do those dolls come with PIMPZ?



  24. 24

    bratz r more exspensive, barbies have been around sooo long, why mess with a legend?



  25. 25

    bratz are for lil whores…barbie rulezzz!!



  26. 26

    WOW!..cant fuck with them…
    40 million dollars is a hell of a lot of money! :O

    Re: Minx

    I'm with you on this. Obviously we don't know all the details, because according to what we're told, it makes no sense. If he was working on the idea in his off time from Mattel, it gives them absolutely no right to try to claim it.
    But with that being said, I honestly don't even see how Mattel can claim rights in the first place. What if it'd been some different kind of child's toy, like a line of male action figures– would they try to claim rights to that? What if the Bratz dolls had been a total bust– would Mattel even care?
    Money makes people so fickle.

    Thank You :)

    my daughter will never be allowed to play with those hooker dolls!



  33. 33

    I LOVE BARBIE!!! OMG Brats are fucking ugly! HAHA I think that on Grandma's Boy the movie they should have used a brats doll…if you have seen the movie you know what I mean.

    The Bratz dolls are toys for children of low class uneducated people. No sane parent would ever allow their children to play with hooker dolls. Low class hispanics and trailer park white trash buy they dolls for their fatherless girls for entertainment. Great way to teach your spawn that being a trashy hooker is ok. What a waste!

    Re: Hate Low Class People – I don't understand why you have to bring race into it. I'm sure there are people of all ethnicities who buy those dolls. Low class is just low class, why mention hispanics and whites? I take offense to your comment because I am a hispanic mother of a girl and I would NEVER buy one of those dolls for her, I forbid those prostitute dolls in my house. It has nothing to do with what race you are. I agree with the part of you saying undeducated or low class people, but you should not mention races. My daughter has received a total of 3 gifts in the past from different people AND different races that were Bratz related. One was a doll, the other was a plate set and the other was a Bratz Head to comb their hair. I thanked these people and then threw the gifts away, she wasn't allowed to play with any of it. My daughter is an intelligent child (and an identified gifted student) she understands completely why I got rid of this stuff.
