Malibu toy maker sued over guitar

September 20, 2007|From Times Wire Services

Malibu-based toy maker Jakks Pacific Inc. was accused of copyright infringement in a lawsuit over electric guitars it makes for Walt Disney Co.'s TV character Hannah Montana.

KidDesigns Inc., the maker of Barbie guitars for El Segundo-based Mattel Inc., filed suit last week in Newark, N.J., claiming that the Hannah Montana songs and other features of the Jakks product are confusingly similar to those KidDesigns created for the Barbie guitar.

KidDesigns, based in Rahway, N.J., seeks to force Jakks to pay damages and recall and destroy the guitars.
