Finally, a good ruling from the 9th Circuit.

Mattel were just haters that Barbie had competition.

see, judges are stupid and incompetent. So you have to watch who you vote for and who assign the judges.

I think Barbie and the Bratz should go duke it out in the alley while a bunch of GI Joe's sit sideline watching. Then maybe some ninja turtles come pop out of the sewer and play hero to break up the fight. Then the GI Joe's would pick a fight with the ninja turtles which turns into a city brawl...then, just then, MAYBE we would have an article on a story worth reading...

They all sound like a bunch of bratz to me!

Contract, people, it's called a contract. Bryant had a contract that anything he developed while working for Mattel belonged to Mattel. Come on, he was even using Barbie parts to create his prototype!

Mattel should get a share of Bratz. Rightfully, it's their product.

Just my opinion: Bryant's IDEAS included being sneaky, joining forces with MGA and selling material, and designs that materialized while under the employ of Mattel. Ideas exhist in the mind, what Bryant handed over to MGA were tangible completed designs; what was actually delivered to MGA was a whole concept that constituted a newly invented type of doll, sculpts, including names associated with such and invention. The IDEA train had long left the station, and the Trolley named Desire was going top speed. An idea is the mental seed from which design, sculpt, physical prototypes come out of. Bryant's plan(or IDEA) of presenting the above material to MGA is the only IDEA that should be in question at this time. MGA and the 9th District Court of Appeals are hanging their hats on what seems to be semantics.
Mattel is no stranger to word games. Can you say SCRABBLE? The current Appeals court decision seems to be BALDERDASH, so now we await the new trial so we can compare APPLES TO APPLES. Only the 8 BALL knows the outcome. All that said, I'm not sure why Mattel would like to have a doll name with such negative connotations.
