I have a stack of entries I want to make, just as soon as work and life lighten up a bit, but I couldn't resist this one if only for the headline.
Mattel, the makers of Barbie and all things Barbie-ish, are suing the creators of the Bratz doll line. The allegations include claims of breach of contract, theft of trade secrets, copyright infringement, and racketeering. (Racketeering? When did that get to be a civil tort?)
According to the story in Businessweek, Mattel has literally been kicking down doors in its search for evidence. Funny, I thought that was the RIAA's job.
