It's just sour grapes of the worst kind. It kinda reminds me of the USPS that wants to tax email because they are losing money.

Someone needs to put this "houndog" to sleep.
It's pretty clear the mange is spreading to his brain.

Here's a tip Houndog: YOu are the descendant of Cain. Your white skin is a mark of your ilks cowardice and clearly is the mark of the beast.

KILL YOURSELF.

So what if this guy was emplyed by mattel at the time. What if this guy had been standing in the toy isle at the local Walmart and came up with the idea? I am sorry if Mattel rejected the idea when they were given their chance and turned it down so too bad too sad you made a bad call. Deal with it. So now they are thowing a temper tantrum and going to get rid of the competition? Nice. Now personally I don't like the way the Bratz dress but that doesn't mean my daughter is going to dress that way. I buy her clothes not her. If anyone has seen the movies or shows, they do teach the kids about trust, friendship and loyalty which is a quality that most adults don't posess anymore. The lawsuit is a prime example of that.

That is not how design work operates. If you are being employed as a designer for a firm, all designs you create on their time and money belongs to them. Whether they use it or not, is their descretion, but the design does not belong to the employee, regardless because the company paid him to do it for them. Just like if you paid an artist to paint a picture for you and you didn't hang it out for all to see, he can't come back and just take the picture to hang where he wants it or resell it because it doesn't belong to him, it belongs to you.

WHY WOULD MATTEL BE SO DUMB THERE NOT BEATING BRATZ BECAUSE BASICALLY ALL THE BARBIE MOVIES AND DOLLS ARE PRINCESS THINGS AND BRATZ ARE A FRESH START TO THE REAL LIFE

Mattel is whining harder than the demographic it serves. If people don't want what you hock then hock something else. This reminds me of Henry Ford who tried to bullied his way into fortune. Mattel could careless that young girls have spoken and demanded something relatable. Just putting hip hop clothes on Barbie does not make her hip. Imagine trying to pass your grandma off as fresh, just by putting her in a wife beater and baggy pants. Ain't a pretty sight!

i thought you believed in evolution and that whites became so because they hid in caves. now you are saying that they are the descendants of cain. which one is it? on the one hand, you would make a good christian(historically, not philosophically) by fighting hate and opinion with hate and , well, opinion. on the other, somedays you seem like you are a historian/logic who doesnt believe any theology. anywho,,just pointing out another inconsistency in "the truth".

Sir,

The white man's ilk were driven out of the N. Africa because they were believed to be the descendants of Cain.

It was then, after spending generations in dark, wet caves and forests, eating insects and drinking blood, that their once proud black skin turned a pale white.

It's been known as the "mark of the beast".

Sir, there is no inconsistency in the truth I speak. It seems to me you just don't understand it.

My 3 girls have several Bratz dolls and paraphernalia so they were upset to hear that the dolls wouldnt be made anymore. It was really hard to explain to 7,6 and 5 year old kid why the comapany was not allowed to make these dolls that they love so much. This past weekend my wife went out and bought every Bratz doll that the kids didnt have because we wouldnt pay 2 nickles for a Barbie. Barbie has never been deversified like the Bratz to incorporate other nationalities. Babrbie does not reflect how the world is made up of different cultures. Sorry Barbie but you wont get any of my money. NEVER!

I Love Bratz and have around 140 of them! I'm very disappointed that Mattel would litigate MGA, the maker of Bratz or any other company that poses a threat to Barbie being the #1 fashion doll. Mattel has a whole other side to it and it's all about corporate greed and stomping out any other competition by any means possible. Personally I would love to see Mattel fall to their knees and another company take it over, fire all the people that has brought about the litigation against MGA and their Bratz. Barbie herself is a copy of the German fashion doll Bild Lilli of the 1950s. Everyone knows and it's so true that Ruth Handler the so-called creator of Barbie, bullied her way into a Swiss ski shop and would not leave until they sold her one of the Bild lilli dolls in their ski shop window. They said she was a typical arogant American. That's a great rep for our country! Oh well, what goes around, comes around and Mattel will eventually get theirs!
