Publish date:

A copyright infringement lawsuit brought against MGA Entertainment by Oceanside California-based Art Attacks has been struck down, according to a report on KidScreen.

The plaintiff had alleged that MGA ripped off the idea for the multi-billion dollar Bratz doll line from Art Attacks' air brushed t-shirt characters.

On May 11th, the nine person jury issued a unanimous verdict on part of the claim and on July 2nd the presiding judge threw out any remaining claims.

Isaac Larian, MGA's president and CEO, was quoted in the KidScreen story as saying he was pleased with the result and is dedicated to continuing to "resist anything short of total victory" in the company's effort to protect its IP.
