Following on from my earlier post about the Bratz / Barbie litigation, a US jury has awarded Mattel $100 million for the infringement of its rights, finding that Bratz dolls were wrongfully created using intellectual property taken by former Mattel employees.
Mattel had asked for $1.8 billion, $1 billion in Bratz profits and interest, and $800 million related to causing a breach of contract.
MGA, the manufacturer of Bratz, intends to appeal.
Will Bratz dolls continue to be manufactured? Nobody know yet, negotiations are continuing.
