Mattel Inc. Sues Rap Snacks Over Nicki Minaj' Barbie Branded Chips


Featured Posts

RAMROD

Mattel Inc sued the maker of Rap Snacks in Los Angeles federal court Thursday, alleging its Nicki Minaj-branded "Barbie-Que Honey Truffle" potato chips violate Mattel's trademark rights in the famous Barbie doll.

Mattel said it never gave Rap Snacks Inc permission to use its trademarks. The toy maker asked the court for an order blocking Rap Snacks from using the "Barbie" name, as well as money damages including profits from "Barbie-Que" sales.

Mattel told the court that Rap Snacks' Minaj-branded "Barbie-Que" chips, launched in June, create customer confusion and a false association with the "Barbie" brand.

"The association is so evident that upon seeing the packaging, representatives for Defendant's celebrity partner queried whether Rap Snacks had obtained permission from Mattel," the lawsuit said. "Indeed, Rap Snacks never requested or received any such permission."

Mattel also said it sells its own snack foods under the "Barbie" name, which increases the risk of confusion.

The company said Rap Snacks refused to stop using the name or "correct the misimpressions it foisted on the public," and that it sued "as a last resort."

Mattel has done that before numerous times and they will always do that again, why they thought they were the exception, also what a lack of profesionality of the company to falsely claim they asked for permission
