Boost IT visibility and business value

Mattel yesterday filed suit in Manhattan federal court against www.chinabarbie.com for "using the toymaker's famed 'Barbie' trademark as part of the name for a pornographic website", Reuters reports.

The suit, which is seeking unspecified damages, says the site is operated by Florida-based Global China Networks using a New York postal address and had "sold memberships to the site to customers around the world".

The suit also helpfully adds that "American girls aged between 3 and 11 own an average of eight Barbie dolls each". ®
