The Null Device
Art 1, Mattel 0
Mattel has failed to censor an artist who was making and selling sexual photographs of
Barbie dolls, as he put it, to critique the materialistic and gender-oppressive
values embodied by the aforementioned lumps of pink plastic.
Mattel claimed that Tom Forsythe, the artist in question, was violating their
trademarks, and wanted the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeal to hand over all his
negatives for destruction; the court thought otherwise.
