Schwarzenegger Sues Bobblehead Maker

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is suing an Ohio bobblehead company alleging it unlawfully hijacked the former Hollywood actor´s image for a toy plastic doll.

The Los Angeles County Superior Court lawsuit says the governor´s image holder, Oak Productions, “does not permit Schwarzenegger´s name, photograph, likeness or voice to be used on commercial products,” unless authorized.

The lawsuit was filed Friday but served on the doll´s makers Tuesday.

The makers of the bobbleheads — Ohio Discount Merchandise — contend the governor is a public political figure and therefore can no longer control his image.
