Mattel Loses Appeal

For the first time in a while, I gotta give props to the American legal system. Mattel made another appeal to try and win their lawsuit against the band Aqua, over their song 'Barbie Girl', making a bunch of stupid claims about the song misleading the public...and lost.

Appeals Judge Alex Kozinski, who is apparently known for his sometimes 'colorful language', put things into perspective, and not only upheld the original verdict, but said that "The parties were advised to chill."
