Barbie Doll Trademark Case Will Go to Canada's Supreme Court
The Supreme Court of Canada will hear the case of Barbie the doll vs. Barbie the BBQ restaurant, the justices ruled Thursday. The high court said it would hear an appeal by U.S. toymaker Mattel Inc. over two federal court decisions that allowed a Montreal restaurant owner to register the name "Barbie's" for his restaurants. Mattel contends this confuses people. But the restaurant owner says the Australian slang makes people think of barbecue -- as in, 'throw some chicken on the barbie' -- not dolls.
