Mattel Sues Stripper Named Barbie

February 12, 2007

Canadian Stripper and nude model, Barbie Doll Benson (the blonde on the right in this pic), is being sued by Mattel. They are demanding that she turn over the domain name barbiebenson.com, claiming that it infringes on in the Barbie Trademark.

(I’ve visited Barbie Benson’s site… its nothing special. It’s just a web-cam site that sells porn.)

Barbie Doll Benson, Miss Nude Canada 1992 says she will not give up her domain name without a fight. Wired News reports she has hired legal counsel in both Canada and the United States. Here lawyers are confident, given that the content of Benson’s site contains no references to Mattel’s doll, and her graphics and logos bear no resemblance to Mattel’s Barbie Doll site.

Mattel “has no comment” on the pending case.
