Battle of the Gassy: 'Fartman' Doll Loses on Appeal
In the competitive and lucrative market for farting dolls, Pull My Finger Fred has won out over Fartman, with a federal appeals court ruling that Fartman infringed Fred and that Fred's maker is entitled to attorney fees.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit affirmed a jury award of nearly $300,000 in damages and $575,000 attorney fees to JCW Investments Inc. in its copyright and trademark infringement suit against Novelty Inc.
