Bra Wars

I came across (don't ask me how)this funny fight over copyrights...

Lawyers from Hanna-Barbera, owners of the cartoon, have squared up to a firm called Booby Doo, which makes sports bras.

Booby Doo’s owners want to register the name as a trademark. But the lawyers, representing the multinational Warner Bros, say it sounds too much like the name of their doggy detective.

So who's side are you going to pick: the tongue-in-cheek bra maker or the too tightly wound cartoon creator?

Looks like a win-win to me--their apparel gets instant recognition, Scooby gets lots of free advertising.
