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.
