  • Fringe Hasbro News: Fox Anchor Harris Faulkner Sues Hasbro Over "Lookalike" in Littlest Pet Shop


    We weren't going to post this originally, since it's a bit out of left field, but enough of you are sending it. A Fox News Anchor going by the name of Harris Faulkner is suing Hasbro for the littlest Pet Shop character in the image above, with a five million dollar bill. Apparently she shares the same name, and the anchor believes they look alike.

    A quote from Sky News:

    "(Hasbro) willfully and wrongfully appropriated Faulkner's unique and valuable name and distinctive persona for its own financial gain."

    Now to the cartoon equine part.  What does this mean for pony with all of it's pop culture shoutouts? I've been told a multitude of things over the last day or two, ranging from FiM gaining permission on theirs, to likeness of public characters being protected by parody laws. Apparently this changes in the realm of actual merchandise though, where they were selling figurines of Harris Faulkner up there.

    If any lawyers want to chime in down in the comments, feel free! Until then, consider it posted.

    Thanks to Eclectic, SleepySteve, Loud, and everyone else for sending it!
